Old stone sinks and animal troughs have been used to grow plants for many years. Today, they are scarce and very expensive. But now, we can make them from hypertufa, an artificial medium with absorbent properties similar to tufa rock. It is lighter than regular concrete, and will not be damaged by freezing after it is completely cured. You will be making a hypertufa planting pot!

Hypertufa is an artificial medium with absorbent properties similar to tufa rock. It is lighter than regular concrete, and will not be damaged by freezing after it is completely cured. Hypertufa, a mixture of cement, coir peat and pearlite molded to resemble tufa or crumbling granite, is a fun process for creating “instant antiquities” for the garden. You will start with a small bowl or trough to learn the techniques so you can make larger pieces at home with confidence. All materials are provided. Be ready to get dirty and have fun; bring water and wear a hat.

Steve Gerischer, an award winning landscape designer, teacher, current president of the Southern California Horticulture Society and board member of Pacific Horticulture Society, has been gardening locally in the Los Angeles area since childhood. He now divides his time between creating landscapes with his company, Larkspur Garden Design, and lecturing on a wide range of topics relating to gardening in Southern California.
