They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery - Bulbinella you must be feeling mighty flattered! :lol:

Sphnagnum moss would work quite well.

WOW they look very interseting. when the plants get bigger may be you could trim them back to the edge of the chook make it look like feathers or something like that.

[quote="Bulbinella"]I got these chook garden ornaments from Bunnings... after assembling them and placing them in my garden I thought they looked a little 'hollow' ... and then it hit me ... one of those funnily mad moments that I think all us gardeners have occassionally, especially when we're trying to find places to fit in more plants ... 'yes, they'd look good with little potted plants inside them' ... so in went the little terracotta pots filled with Sedums.

That is such an unusual idea.
Fantastic!
