I was wondering how you fill your ceramic pots so that they can be easily moved for winter storage. I don't want to fill mine completely with potting soil or I will never be able to move it. Any suggestions?
I fill them as normal, but I put them on wheeled carts that are specially made for large planters.
I turn a plastic pot upside down and put in the bottom of the larger pot and fill around it with packing peanuts. Works great and helps with drainage.
I to have put a pot upside down within the larger pot. I cannot comment on the packing peanuts.
Packing peanuts have worked for me. The only problem is that if you want to empty your pots and re-use the potting soil, you have to pick the packing peanuts out of the dirt because it all mixes together to some extent. ... I use soda cans, yogurt containers, even juice bottles in the bottom of my pots.
Late to the conversation, but...
I use packing peanuts, but I contain them inside plastic shopping bags, like the ones Target insists on foisting on us. Fill the bag 2/3 of the way, tie it shut, and tuck it into the bottom of the pot. It's much easier to clean up at the end of the season!
