Hypertufa troughs make wonderful planters for shallow-rooted outdoor plants such as alpines, thymes, and succulents. We will show you how to create your own trough using a cement, perlite, and peat moss mixture. You’ll make your trough on the first day and finish it on the second, planting it with a variety of shallow-rooted plants.
