DIY Plant Containers! Hypertufa was developed in the 1930s to replicate the stone troughs that were popular among English gardeners in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The lightweight stand-ins were not only easier to come by, but also easier to transport. Thanks to their porous nature, the pots were ideal for plants needing good drainage. Hypertufa containers are still practical in the garden and simple to create.
Concrete sphere from an inexpensive light cover. I love-love this idea for my future butterfly garden, to give them a place to sit in the sun (though it may not be flat enough? They're little...). I'd probably make it hypertufa so it'd be lighter. And, I'd bury it a little so it'd look completely round.
