Girls Just Want to Have Fun!
Have you ever admired those old stone sinks and animal troughs cut out of stone? I have too and here is an easy way to recreate the same look in a more lightweight medium called hypertufa.
Hypertufa is an artificial medium with absorbent qualities similar to tufa rock. It is lighter than regular concrete, and will not be damaged by freezing after it is completely cured.
I have two smaller hypertufas that I made with my garden club that are at least 15 years old and I leave them outside in the coldest temperatures and they still look great.
My interest in hypertufas now is that I want to create multiple, larger hypertufa containers for a particular spot I have in mind in my Sharps Chapel garden and I really would like to plant them with a specimen tobacco plant in each. I saw tobacco being used in a decorative fashion in small quantities in a Kentucky garden and it looked very attractive.
