Making a Hypertufa Planter – 3

Serenity Cove – a gardening enthusiast’s blog explains the process of making a hypertufa planter with easy, flowing text and several pictures showing the various stages of the process, right from mixing the recipe all the way to the finished planter:




Make a Hypertufa Trough – 2

Another, comprehensive tutorial from FineGardening (by Helen Dawson) that teaches you how to make a hypertufa trough in great detail, step-by-step, with many pictures. Discusses the recipe and mixing method thoroughly too:


Playing with Hypertufa

As they say: When it rains, it pours. 🙂

If you can guess, I’m – rather coyly – trying to tell you that I’m posting one more link that deviates from my ‘strictly DIY – strictly hypertufa’ rules. Having said that, I do submit that this link is not exactly ‘non-hypertufa’ but on the other hand, it is not exactly a DIY tutorial either.

Published by a self-confessed ‘complicatingly simple gardener’, ‘Playing with Hypertufa’ is more of a running, pictorial commentary from Jester – a DIY gardening and garden art enthusiast and a blogger – of her practical experiences and experiments making various garden art objects with hypertufa.

Starting with the basic hypertufa recipe, she moves on to making bowls, pots, mushrooms and planters, all with pictures. I sure found her post enjoyable and useful; hope you will too:


DIY Garden Mushrooms (not hypertufa)

Okay. Already. I DO remember having stated in my first post that I will post links to only DIY hypertufa resources here. From time to time, however, I come across some great general DIY garden art tutorials which are just SO amazing that I just want to share them.

So, to keep it short, I am (sort of) bending my own rule a little bit here (but hopefully, in a structured manner). I’m creating a new category on this blog called ‘Other Garden Art’ and will post useful non-hypertufa garden art links under this category from time to time.

Here is the first one:


DIY Garden Mushrooms – by the good folks at Birds&Blooms. Just take a look – irresistibly pretty!!! Hypertufa or not, as long as you’re in to DIY garden art, I”m nearly sure you’d want to build these (and the link below will show you how, very easily too):–mushrooms/
