This weekend I got the idea from Flea Market Garden Style magazine to plant in teacups. So on Monday after my morning job in Pasadena I scoured 3 thrift shops and found two acceptable teacups for $3.49. I asked my Rick to drill holes in the bottoms of them for drainage that night. One must use a masonry drill bit. The smaller one was really hard and he almost gave up. Use masking tape on the bottom and drill through it. The tape keeps the ceramic/porcelain or whatever from splintering or cracking.
