How to Use Broken Terra Cotta Pots

Casa Verde: Break Up the Terra Cotta

They may know how to grow the lushest shrubs, but even green thumbs are known to break a pot every now and then. When a terra cotta pot bites the dust, don't toss it in the trash. Take the shards and turn them into something useful. Break the bits into small pieces (carefully of course!) and add them to the bottom of other planters. The broken shards will help with drainage and keep plants perfectly moisturized!

And it saves on dirt! The broken pieces take up room that normally would be filled with dirt. Might not sound like much with one pot, but when you have 10-15 pots in your container garden it really makes a difference!
