Kids Go Gardening - - Front Page -

Do you like mak­ing mud pies? With a bit of help from a grown up you can take it to another level and make your own fake rock “Hy­per­t­ufa” pots.

Even though it looks like rock, es­pe­cially when it gets old and weath­ered, the good thing about hy­per­t­ufa is that it is nowhere near as heavy as ac­tual rock. That’s be­cause hy­per­t­ufa has per­lite in it. Per­lite is su­per light. It comes from a spe­cial kind of vol­canic rock.

Gar­den­ers have been pots ma­chin­ing hy­per­t­ufa look so for ages, be­cause they grow­ing great and plants love re­ally in them. You can make big hy­per­t­ufa pots, but its best bit like to start small. It’s a bak­ing a cake!
