I used all of last year's pots (Dollar Store wastebaskets) for the dwarf tomatoes, basil and miscellaneous stuff, so that left me with none in which to plant my golden bell and hot peppers. There is only room in the garden for the dozen Quadrato Rosso D'Asti sweet peppers, so all of the others have to be planted in pots. The wastebaskets worked pretty well last year, but the hard plastic shattered when trying to drill drainage holes in the bottoms. That makes them perfect for the small tomato varieties, and they slipped over the fence posts easily, but I wanted something a bit sturdier for the pepper plants.
Are these perfect, or what? They are really large, really sturdy and flexible enough that holes were easily drilled with no breakage. Best of all, they were only $1 each at Dollar Tree! I bought seven, but I'm tempted to go buy more. Even if they have to be half buried to keep them from absorbing too much heat, I think they will make great planters.
