Tufa is a limestone deposit which builds near springs, waterfalls and other bodies of moving water. Historically, hollowed out and formed into usable shapes such as cattle drinking troughs, these vessels are now highly prized and used as rustic planters in cottage gardens.
Hypertufa is made from a mix of materials that emulates the porosity, alkalinity, moisture retention and root cooling properties of tufa. Alkaline-loving plants thrive in these handmade hypertufa planters.
