Here's how to make an easy tiered herb planter with dollar store buckets:First, purchase three metal buckets from the dollar store in 3 different sizes. Mine are from Dollarama. Then, drill a hole in the bottom of each bucket to help with drainage. Next, fill the largest bucket about ¾ full with potting soil. Place the middle-sized buck in the center of the large bucket, tucking soil around it to keep it in place. Finally, fill the second bucket with more potting soil and place the smallest bucket in the center of that bucket. Pat more potting soil around it to secure it. Now, you can add the herb plants of your choosing to each layer of buckets. I was able to fit one plant in the top bucket, 3 in the middle bucket, and 6 plants in the largest bucket. Plant your favourite herbs, water them, and enjoy them all Spring and Summer long! My favourites to plant are rosemary, basil, chives, oregano and mint. This tiered herb planter looks pretty on a sunny porch, or amidst a flower garden as a little feature.
