I have two OLD crockery containers. What would be best to plant in them and how would I plant in them???
The crockery containers I believe we're used to make pickles in many years ago.
Old ceramic glazes often contained lead so I wouldn't use your pots for edibles. You might grow them in a plastic pot that is inserted into the ceramic pot. (cachepot) All pots, except cachepots, need drainage holes. Holes in the bottom prevent root rot and allow oxygen into the soil. Water coming out the bottom also tells you that you've given your plant enough water. (Don't water like this for desert plants!) You don't say how large the pots are so telling you what you may grow is complete guesswork.
