As everyone who gardens in containers knows, along with proper watering, drainage is an issue of utmost importance. I usually use rocks at the bottom of my pots to facilitate easy drainage. But, I was inspired by poor broken pots and ... well, let's face it, I'm a bit hormonal right now ... so I took a hammer to them and used the broken shards of ceramic in place of rock. Upcycling or repurposing something destined for the land fill rocks pretty hard but let's face it, breaking shit with a hammer rocks even harder.
Celosia is quite heat-tolerant to boot. Score!
