It can get quite expensive buying different planters and containers for your flowers, veggies or herbs. I decided to check out the Dollar Tree and see what I could come up with!
What I found were these wonderful trash cans in vivid fun colors! They even have handles for easy moving!
I was going to buy all red ones but, I came up two short on my first trip to a Dollar Tree store. As a matter of fact, I bought that store out on these trash cans.
Flip the can over and drill a few holes for drainage (thank you hubby!). Be careful and take your time doing this because these are plastic and will crack.
Fill with soil and plant your plants in them.
I wanted mine to be Italian planters (to sell). I used a Roma tomato plant, a sweet basil and a purple basil.
I made up 15 of them back in March and they sold quickly by the second week of May! So, I have since made up 35 more Italian planters and 15 salad planters.
Each time I made a new set of them, I would tell Troy that when we get down to just one, I want to keep it for myself. So, far that has not happened. LOL
Instead, I just keep making more!
Next time you think about potting a plant in some sort of container, check out the dollar store!
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
