While strolling the neighbourhood in the 1990s, I saw a great idea and then, I had a favourite plant that was tipped over and my pot was broken. I didn't want to throw my nice pot out so I created half a pot tipped garden. They pop up every so often, but are such a talking point - neighbours and family will admire your work.

You will require,

1 large clay pot cut in half from top to bottom
1 tray of small flowering plants minimum 8 plants of assorted colours
1 tray of chives or similar height
1 bag of soil and gloves


Lie the half pot, in a corner of your yard or where you would like to display it as a show piece, Dig it deep enough and place fresh soil at the entrance to the clay pot, place chives on an angle as if they were tipped over and scatter colour flowers amongst it.

Make it rustic. Grow a tomato plant over the side of the pot for a more authentic look, you can go crazy with imagination and ideas, the pots the limit.

Get the neighbours and kids involved, see who can be the most creative while having fun in the garden

How fascinating; I've never seen anything quite like it. I never would have imagined that it could be a natural phenomenon.
