OK, either dig through your stash of flower pots or make a trip to your local home improvement store (or your mom's house) and gather what you need:
1 12" flower pot
1 saucer to go under the base pot (optional)
4 8" flower pots*
1 4' garden stake (sturdy- steel covered in plastic- I got mine at Wal-Mart)
20" of 1/2" PVC or similar (look around in your garage- you don't need much)
Flowers/plants- I planted 3-4 four-inch flower squares on each tier
- I used plain terra cotta pots- I wouldn't recommend using the azalea terra cotta pots. Your pots MUST have the drainage hole on the bottom.
