  • Flowerpot Preparation
  • 1. Be sure to get flowerpots that are made in the USA and are lead-free. Inexpensive lead test kits are available at your local hardware store and are an inexpensive way to be sure your flowerpots are lead-free. To prepare pot, wash thoroughly and let dry. Grease pot with vegetable shortening and place in 350°F oven for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Once cool, grease the inside of the pots once more and heat again to be sure it is fully seasoned. (Note: While this may seem like a lot of work, flowerpots only need to be seasoned the first time you want to use them.)
