"Making Flower Pots"

I have seen this tecnique used some years ago, you mix cement, peat moss and ??? to make a unique flower pot. I remember you must line your form with plastic, a hole is put in for drainage, the mixture is then put into the form and left to dry. When dried you take it out of the form and you now have a flower pot. A metal brush is used to soften the edges and smooth it out. Said to spray it with beer and you could cover it with moss.
I have no idea of the exact measurements or the third ingredient. Any one out there who knows and will share this with me will be appreciated.
