But I still had the rosemary left and was out of clean mugs ( I have to do dishes badly! lol) So I thought...why not use a teapot? I have 3, so using 2 wasn't a big deal. The two that I used I purchased from Marshalls awhile back for about 10 dollars each. First, I took the teapot and filled with 1/4 way full with cool water, then I took the rosemary plant that was in a plastic container (those are what they usually come in) with its plastic container and placed it in the opening of the teapot. I was alittle worried it wouldn't fit, but the beauty of the plastic container is that it just molded into the shape of the teapot hole pretty easily.
The teapot idea is perfect because of the drainage. Alot of times I overwater plants, so with this, the excess water just drains down and out into the teapot.
With the second rosemary plant I wasn't so lucky. The container was a biodegradeable (which normally is awesome) plastic, so when I tried to meld it to the teapots shape, it broke. I just filled the teapot 1/4 ways with soil, placed the rosemary inside, and then filled in the rest of the space around the rosemary with soil. That seems to work, I don't know what I'll do when it comes time to plant outside though! I may just have to keep it indoors.
