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. :-)

The large terracotta-colored pot we used last summer for our porch planter just did not look right with the selection of coleus and other shade plants we wanted to use this year.
