A blog about gardening on the Gulf Coast of MS,,,containers, window boxes, baskets,,,intensive, square foot and with a few recipes, crafts, songs and rambling posts thrown in here and there...
I have always wanted to do these. I haven't done one yet though. Thanks for sharing the recipe and the pictures!!!!
Hi Eve, thanks for stopping by. I'm going to check out your past post on square foot gardening. I have heard of it but it's been awhile. I'm not allowed to do anything permanent at my veggie garden as I rent the plot but I'm sure I can figure something out! :)
Those are some big ones!
Yes they are huge. Starting small would probably be better. Although, I had a friend named Gwen who I taught to knit on Monday and Tuesday she started a bedspread. And she finished it,,so who knows...maybe thinking big is the way to go.
Buying pots has gotten to be so expensive. This might be the route for me to take in some instances. Thanks for the info!
Hello,I made Hypertufa pots last year. Start with smaller bowls and boxes to get a feeling for the material and mixes. It is a dirty job and if possible to have a second person help with mixing and moving. Please visit my blog and use the search function to see the Hypertufa pot I made.
Love your blog!Making things with hypertufa is not only fun but rewarding. You can get some great looking hypertufa pots and you can make them fairly cheap.We've been doing them for some time now and I have to tell you, it's fun! Trying to come up with different ideas for things to make with hypertufa and like he said you get that aged looking stone that looks great in your garden.People should give it a try, use the hypertufa recipe and get ready to get down and dirty :) Ohhh it's not that bad, just pretend your a kid again playing in the mud :)Hope everyone tries it and have fun making new pieces of art with hypertufa.Sincerely,Jamie BoyleHypertufa Gardenerwww.HypertufaGardening.com
Recipe; equal parts, PORTLAND CEMENT, peat moss, blend of pearlite, vermiculite (half and half), handful of nylon fibers. Portland cement is the glue and the strength, as the pots age the peat moss deteriorates and leaves voids. With out the strength and glue of the cement and fibers the pots will break and/or deteriorate. For strength and longevity you MUST have PORTLAND CEMENT as a equal ingredient. of course it makes the pots a little heavier but comman sense must prevail if you want your pot to last.
