Which items do you use for containers outdoors? Drill holes in the bottom of a shoe and the gap in the heel will raise it up to drain out. It's a tall, cylindrical container, so annuals are a good choice for this because their roots won't have time to outgrow the container in one season. A cactus is also a great choice because it matches the theme. You will have to replant it next year, and make sure you use a cactus mix. Planted purses are really cute containers to hang along a fence. It's another one that will only last a season, and you'll have to add drainage holes.
