When one of my terra cotta planters crack, or break, I take a hammer and remove the broken side and then place the good half in front of a plant in my garden.
I cover the edges of the planter with just enough soil to hide them so it looks like the other half is buried.
I love how it appears that the plant is 'growing' out of the half buried planter.
And with the broken half that I hammered away from the good half, I hammer the pieces small enough to use in the bottom of another planter for drainage.
There is no waste of a terra cotta, or clay pot, at my house. :-)
