I've just remembered that my local cricket club are having a 'china smash' stall and are looking for chipped plates, etc, check with the local fete organiser as they might have one too

The original post was from 6 years ago, so he might not have any any more

I've moved this to the recycling section.

Use them as crocks in the bottom of plant pots for drainage?


BUT you must remember when emptying the pots the next spring - I just got a nasty cut scooping the soil out by hand forgetting that I put a broken pot in the bottom last year
I've now replaced the broken china with woodchips to avoid this happening again.

My local tip has a 'hardcore' skip, I put any broken china in there now.


Ouch; nasty!

Terracotta's a little more forgiving (especially if sea/river-water tumbled)...but then if you've access to that, you've got ready access to other forms of drainage!
