4" to 5" Terra Cotta Flower Pots

Available at Amazon

I tried a variety of different sizes and found that clay flowerpots between 4 and 5 inches in diameter work best. The key is matching the pot with a hole saw that is has a diameter about half an inch smaller than the pot.


3/4" Pine Boards

Available at the Home Depot

I reccommend boards that are at least 2 inches wider than that the diameter of the pots.


Rope

Available at the Home Depot

I used 1/4" diameter rope that was intended to be used as a clothesline. I think a thicker rope would add a nice aesthetic to the garden.


Zip Ties

Available at the Home Depot

Zip ties – also called cable ties or tie wraps – come in a variety of different sizes. I tried both large 10" ties and thinner 4" ties. The thinner ties are much easier to work with.
