Easily Turn A Dollar Tree Popcorn Bucket Into The Cutest DIY Garden Decor

0 5

With a rough dimension of 3.75 inches wide and just under 8 inches deep, one of these popcorn containers is the equivalent of a 4-inch flower pot, just slightly deeper. You’ll need to be mindful about what you plant in it, since larger plants will quickly become rootbound and won’t thrive. Trees, shrubs, and most perennials are definitely a no-go here. Luckily, you still have plenty of options.

Flowering annuals that will last all summer, such as French marigolds, alyssum, bacopa, and geraniums would all work well. Pansies would work perfectly for a spring container. You’d likely only plant one plant (or sow seed for a single plant) in each container so they don’t get too crowded. Foliage plants such as dusty miller and coleus would also work well. But it doesn’t just have to be an ornamental planting. Herbs such as basil, thyme, chives, rosemary, mint, and oregano would work well, especially if you harvest often to keep the plants from getting too large. Just be sure to use the best kind of soil for growing herbs to help them thrive.

And, if you do want to plant something larger, Dollar Tree also offers a larger version of these popcorn containers. You can get one 8.75 inch wide square bucket for $1.25, perfect for growing everything mentioned above as well as plants like leaf lettuce, peppers, larger annuals, or even bulbs for a spring garden.
