Hypertufa Planters


Create rustic, textured containers that are lightweight, porous, and perfect for your garden.

Hypertufa is a relatively lightweight concrete mixture that creates a stone like appearance in your trough. It is a great planting space for sedums, small bulbs, miniature or dwarf plants, herbs, moss, or any special plant that you have! Plants love to grow in the planters because water gets stored in all the little cracks and is easily accessible in dry times. Air gets to the roots and the planters are frost resistant.

Artist Jennifer Fox will lead you through the creating, shaping, unmolding and curing your planter. All the materials are supplied and proceeds benefit the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden. You will need to wear work clothes and shoes, and have a 2-foot square flat area in your car to transport your trough home.
