Those are wonderful and interesting to look at. Great idea Kim. You could submit that as an idea, a way to use broken pots.

I do not know how it is in other areas but in my city there are a lot of sales. Pots are marked down 75% at some stores. They are the terracotta and ceramic because in our weather they are not winter hardy.

I thought about buying some the other day but my back was hurting so bad I did not feel like lifting the pots. They had large pots that were 3ft tall for 1.00. I just could not lift it into the buggy. If it had jumped in my buggy it would have came home with me.

Oh, I am so envious. Big pots for $1.00 !! I'd be filling up my car for sure. They last here as a freeze is rare in my part of Florida.

LAGardengirl,
This is an excellent way to re-use - very artistic. Good timing, too.
Just yesterday I was checking and cleaning my terra cotta pots and was sad that some were cracked - set them aside for whatever. Shrug!
I'm happy now that I didn't toss them out. Thumbs up

It amazes me how people come up with such creative ways to save a broken pot. It is difficult to choose a favorite from the photos. I loved them all.

Thanks! At the moment they are doing well as I planted mostly winter growers in them.
