Gardening in Hypertufa Planters (Ohio)

14K Views
I have a small garden here in zone 6 in Ohio. I love pastel colors so that is what I have, for the most part. I also garden in small , medium, and large hypertufa troughs. I love sedums and succulents. Thanks for the invite to join in here. Hannah said the more pictures the better, so I hope I am not overdoing it.

And I love the Echinecea Purple Coneflower, and a little Black Eyed-Susans sneak in too.

My Coreopsis, I think this one is Moonbeam, grows all over. I even have some in urns because it behaves so well.

This is one of my largest hypertufa troughs. It is four feet long and two feet wide. Huge!

These are my smallest. Yogurt containers used as a mold.

This circular hypertufa is made from a mold of an old Campfire Pit. It was a large saucer and I used it as a form. It has been wonderful as a container for sedums and alpines.

    Can't wait to make the planters. Good idea for the winter months then ready for planting season.

      @Cindy Barto That's true. I usually make quite a few in the fall so that I am all ready for spring. And if you put them in the shade, they will grow moss for your shade ferns.

    I've been meaning to try my hand at making some hypertufa troughs for several years but keep putting it off......your creations have inspired me to get busy and have some fun!
