hi, i have broken the rim off my ceramic pot, anyone know what adhesive i should use to mend it

There's been a few breakages here lately....... try no nails, it's not water proof but will work for a while. Messy stuff but when it's set you can wipe off the residue

In a gardening magazine there was a feature about fixing broken pots. They drilled little holes so that it could be sewn back together but I don't remember with what or if they used a glue as well. I don't know if it would work so well with a broken rim as with a more vertical break.I could search through my pile of magazines for the article and find out the details if you think it's worth a try?

Over the yrs I have had a few broken pots and left them naturlise and they are nwo fabulas as spilling pots of Muscari bulbs.

I'm not so polite nut- I call it 'grips like ****' 

I've just fixed one of mine with sealant and so far so good.
