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!
