I sometimes collect baskets to put pots in my garden. Unfortunately they do not last but one season because wicker rots out in the weather. I do not know why I did not do this sooner but here is my solution for any of those $1 wicker baskets you find at garage/yard sales- Dip them in hypertufa (or concrete) and turn them into garden planters and baskets. There are steps to follow and you need to find baskets that will soak up water to make this work. I did 3 baskets and now I am going to hunt garage sales for more! Creating. Inspiring. Gardening without the rules! You can read and see more over at my blog where I have other concrete and hypertufa garden projects!

You will need a wicker basket that absorbs water- not twigs or plastic – to soak before dipping
