Use Styrofoam in Large Pots

Planting large flower pots. Use styrofoam to fill the pots half way. This provides good drainage and makes it easier to move the pots.

If you use styrofoam in the bottom of your pots, you don't have a problem with the pots being top heavy?

Some plastic peanuts dissolve in water, so test your peanuts in a glass of water to be sure they are not that kind, or they will sink down to nothing.
