    Can this method be used in any planting zone?

  2. Cordelia Blakeslee on October 12, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Try to do it with Woodprix plans 🙂

    I love the idea of instant height. I planning to make a few square cement cloth pots and then line them up on my fence and plant my little boxwoods into them to have a head start on my screening out the neighbor. It will also look very nice if i decorate the pots a bit or paint them…so many possibilities. Thank you!

    Great idea, but if you cut the bottom of the pot don’t you negate the point of putting a plant in a pot? Takes away the ability to move it around. Also, won’t the plant/shrub/tree get too big for the pot a lot faster if it can get all its nutrients and feed from the soil outside the pot?

    Not sure if you did or not. But to reduce the dust cloud, try soaking the bases in water first, even overnight 😉

  6. Lazarus Douvos on October 12, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    why do that and not just plant directly into the ground?

  7. Lovedeep Singh on October 12, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    Ma’am I like the pots you have, can you please tell me the size of the pots? 🙌

  8. salobreña on October 12, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    excellent

  9. Linda White on October 12, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    This makes sense. I do understand that you can’t move the plants once their roots ha anchored. So do you break up the terracotta pots when you want to remove the plant? I mean they are an investment, so how does removing go?

  10. Deepti Vattipulusu on October 12, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Could you please suggest what should be the minimum size of pots so that your relatively winter hardy plants like roses are protected from snow.

  11. andrew ashdown on October 12, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    I think I ‘ll put 100 pots along the tapis verte and a 100 more in the orangery – Nestor will see to it, and we can invite Hugh and Alastair around for champers

  13. 21ARUNDEL on October 12, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Great video thanks Bunny Guiness. What should i fill the pot with ? Topsoil or compost?

  14. Amy David on October 12, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Very good news

  15. Gabriel Della Cecca on October 12, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Hi Bunny, I would like to cut my terracota pot in a half and then fit it around a pillar , can I do following the same steps? Thank you

  16. Welcome Starfall on October 12, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Beware using weed killer on the gravel or paving around the pot when doing this!

  17. Charlie Cottontail on October 12, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    She’s awesome!!!

  18. Jodina Cordova on October 12, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Did this with my potted grapevines.

  19. Holly_Kay on October 12, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    What a wonderful idea for planting long-term in pots!!! It’s really turning pots into planters–I have all sorts of ideas now. Your garden is amazingly beautiful! So glad your video popped up this am 🙂

  20. Andrew Revell on October 12, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Great advice and a fantastic idea. Dare I say, always wear ear defenders when using an angle grinder, to avoid long term damage to your ears.

  21. maginot2u on October 12, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Open Bottom pots are a great idea!!

  22. Maly Bryan on October 12, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    Where do you resource your pots from?

  23. Sally Semrau on October 12, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    It’s a shame that you have to mention about someone stealing them!

  24. ChangingtheWorld OneLifeattheTime on October 12, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    Thanks for confirming my “sense” on this…. I recently removed a dead-looking tree that had volunteered in one of my large pots…. The roots had actually grown through the drainage hole in the bottom. of the pot and into the soil below… Amazing, after an hour of struggling, a friend and I were able to get the dead-looking (and dry) tree out of the pot and I temporarily stuck it in the very large pot and prayed that it lived…. Amazingly a few weeks later, I noticed green leaves sprouting from the “stick!!” It’s alive!!

  25. Bunny Gamez on October 12, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    I would like to see how you make a hole in the cement.

  26. Iman-Ali Beg on October 12, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    This is a great tip but unfortunately for most of us who have small city gardens, this is no good because we keep on moving them around.

  27. Franky Trevor on October 12, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    what a waste! LOL

  28. Suzanne Arnull on October 12, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    What a great idea, I am extending my patio and will definitely give this a go. Where did you get your lovely pots from?

  29. UnderDog on October 12, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    Thanks for the ideas. Beautiful gardens. Now I have a plan for a spot in the front of my house.

  30. Mary Richardson on October 12, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    What is the name of the beautiful red plant at 7:39 please?

  31. Tirtzah-תרצה on October 12, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Ear protection would have made me more comfortable.

  32. laura frasheri on October 12, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    So good ideas. I’m so glade that I found your channel 😊

  33. Frances Ly on October 12, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Genius!

  34. Kathee Waterhouse on October 12, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Fantastic advice, I have been collecting bottomless pots for years and had just decided to start taking the bottoms of pots I already have but this video expands my possibilities endlessly.

  35. boo bye on October 12, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    So what’s the point in planting in a pot?

  36. Holy Cow on October 12, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Good information

  37. How’s It Growing? on October 12, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    This is one of the best videos I’ve ever watched. I’ve come back to it over and over. Thank you for being an incredible inspiration to me in my small backyard garden in the states.

  38. That Chick Saváge on October 12, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I like this pot lady🥰

  39. Sz Pap on October 12, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    I wonder why does she spend on those expensive pots at all if she does not need them. 🙂
    We use pots for plants that we need to move to frost-free safety for the winter… The whole point of using pots is where mobility is required for some reason.

  40. Myke on October 12, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    how to winterize those beautiful plants in pots

  41. rosebudforglory on October 12, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    Why on earth did people downgrade these videos?

  42. cmgr on October 12, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    I don’t get the point of this at all! Why not just grow it in the ground? The whole point of growing in pots is the mobility of it!

  43. Haylie R. Wilson on October 12, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    I first didn’t get the point. But WOW those huge cover pots make the garden look so professional and put together.

  44. Helen Trope on October 12, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    If the idea is for the plants to root through the bottom of the pot, why do you need a pot at all? Is it just for decoration? It would mean you can’t move the pots. If it’s such a good idea why doesn’t somebody cotton on and sell pots without bases to avoid the need for angle grinding?

  45. Andy Heather Bridge on October 12, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Genius. Loving your artist’s fresh approach to gardening.

  46. Anthony Harris on October 12, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    I used an angle grinder for the first time two days ago. It was absolutely terrifying lol. I do love the concept of this though.

  47. Environment and flowers🌹🌺 on October 12, 2022 at 8:32 pm

  48. Helena Chase on October 12, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    learning from a master, how fortunate we are.. Unfortunately I live in zone three and not much can survive above ground… I will experiment though !

  49. Janina Lebedew on October 12, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Can I do this with a clematis positioned under a large magnolia?

  50. Anna Shiegl on October 12, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Will this work with a ceramic pot?
