Plant vegetation into heavy containers

Background information and definitions
Heavy containers (e.g. concrete pots, car tyres) may help to anchor planted vegetation in place, especially in high-energy environments. Vegetation could be grown off-site in containers and then transplanted to the field. Alternatively, vegetation could be planted directly into containers in the field. Consider using containers that will break down or can be removed once the plants are established, e.g. biodegradable concrete (Krumholz & Jadot 2009).
