  • one gallon pots

    I recall someone having asked about one gallon pots not too long ago. I just got 100 new black plastic pots on eBay for $39.00 with free shipping. The offer was for different quantities, and my first inclination was to go for 50 of them for $28.00. I clicked on 100, expecting it to be $56, but it was only $39. They are shipping UPS, and arriving in less than a week. Seller is "garden pots-007" in Corona, CA.
    USDA Zone 9b Wish list: Abruzzi, Pasquale, Filacciano, Tagliacozzo, Zingarella, Godfather. Any, including unknowns, from Abruzzo, Italy.

      I got 100 pots for $39. They came to 39 cents each. Free UPS shipping.

    Locally here I can get 1 gallon pots used from locally nurseries for .05-.10 each. I haven't priced new but shipped that number seems pretty decent! Shipping makes me think twice when it costs more than the product does!

      Even better! Nurseries are pretty hard to find around here any more. The land all went to tract housing 20 years ago...

    +1. Now that I know better, I will never buy new pots as long as the nurseries in the area are open. When I recently bought some used 15 gallon pots from a nursery, they walked me to the back where they have hundreds of used ones lying around in all sizes. Definitely worth a look if you have a nursery nearby.

      +2. Indeed. Used nursery pots all the way. I only wish I'd gone that route before buying Home Depot/OSH pots for the first year of fig mania.

        Hey, Sarah, there used to be a few big tree nurseries out your way. Are they still there? Have you perhaps paid them a visit? Thanks!

        The bad economy in 2008 hit nurseries in my area pretty hard and several closed down. We still have a few (a couple are excellent) and yes, I have been paying them multiple visits.
