Hypertufa Pots

More fun than mud pies! Hypertufa pots fit well into any garden setting. The natural stonelike texture is made from a mix of cement, peat moss and sand (along with a few other variables for texture and strength). As the peat moss decays over time it adds to the pitted natural look. These pots are extremely versatile as they can be left outdoors all winter. This means you can plant them with annuals or perennials such as these sweet little alpine plants.

Hypertufa actually means fake tufa. Tufa rock is a volcanic stone which was once used in England as watering troughs for livestock.

The shape of the final pot can be as varied as the mold used to make it. Round or square they are fantastic.
