Q.I Want To Use A Concrete Birdbath (about 3″ Deep) To Plant Some Flowers. Should I Be Concerned About Water Drainage?
This birdbath is too deep for the birds to drink comfortably. I want to get another one and use this deeper one for plants, but am concerned about drainage. Of course it will be outside, but I don’t know what I would do about drainage. Please help. I don’t know how to send you a picture. I’m a senior citizen and not technically inclined. Sorry!!

This article has some ideas for planting in a birdbath, such as using succulents, which have shallow roots. When watering, don't overdo. But since concrete is porous, the water should eventually seep out.
