Hypertufa planter forms

Hypertufa planter forms
Posted by Peter from NY on 2001-03-20 12:42:44

I am considering making Hypertufa
planters ( peat/portland cement sand)
Does anyone have suggestions about
making the molds or building forms?
Also, how long do these planters last
for?

    The pots can be made inside any plastic bowl or container you have around, like an old dish pan. You can also get nice ones at the dollar store. You need to line them with a plastic bag so you can get them out when they're set, (about 2 days.) They last pretty much forever.
