She says you really can use any buckets you have around your house. Or, go to the dollar store or even places like Home Goods and find a pot or container you like.
All you need to do is drill some drainage holes in the bottom. If you don't have a drill, get a hammer and open up a hole... put some gravel in.. and you have your own container.
If you need height in your pots or containers, you don't have to do flowers.. There are also many bushes you can use for height. You can add bird houses or old watering cans, or whatever you want for color.
Gretchen suggests going to Millcreek Gardens to get all the flowers and other supplies you'll need. That's where Gretchen buys her flowers for her pots.
