6 Uses For Broken Flower Pots and Chimineas

No need to throw away those broken garden items. Here are a few simple ways to help them find a new purpose. Visit my blog page for full details.
  • Place broken pot pieces in garden beds for texture, support, and sometimes color.
  • Give frogs a place to hide and nest.
  • Flower pot broken in half? No problem! Place each half in garden bed with the opening next to a plant. It gives the illusion that the pot is partially buried under ground.
  • Cracked chiminea? Use it for growing a plant. When it snaps completely in half, move it to a flower bed and use as in picture #3.
  • Use the chimney from the broken chiminea as a stand for a shallow bowl, creating a bird bath or frog pond.
  • Colorful broken pots can expand and boost colors in larger pots.

    I love your ideas and here is another one. For broken pottery or ceramic items you can use Flex Seal as it now comes in white and then paint the item. Good as new! No I do not work for them or get any proceeds from them.

    Yes, Donna Steward, you are right. Lynne Fernandez, I've wondered what I'll do with my iron base when the bottom part of my chiminea breaks completely apart. Douglas Hunt, thank you. :-) Debra, I have a broken coffee mug (given to me by a friend) that

    Broken or chipped dishes are useful also to add bits of quaint color. A teacup can be recycled as a bird feeder. Plates partially buried in the soil make a unique edging.

    Hurricane Wilma destroyed a very heavy chiminea on our patio. Only the bottom was left in it's wrought iron base. It has become a hit with birds in my garden as a rustic looking birdbath!

    Char, I think it's something with a round bottom & tall chimney, you would use on a patio to keep warm on cool evenings. Maybe to burn wood in. Looked on line.
