repairing teracotta pots

Can anyone offer any advice on repairing teracotta pots.

    There are loads of solutions if you use Uncle Google.  Everything from PVA to Gorilla Glue, to epoxy.  I've used Gorilla glue to fix concrete wall cappings and to hold slabs on steps in place so I guess it will do the job on terracotta too.
  • If you use Gorilla glue then be aware it's very good but yellow.

    Thank you, I bought some yesterday and found out it dried yellow! never mind we learn, now I have googled it and there is a clear one - will try that.

    Araldite works for me.
    Have a pot I mended 10 years ago and still going strong!

    Thank you for suggestions. Araldite seems like a good suggestion. They are very special large pots broken in half due to plant breaking pots.
