cheap source for small plastic pots.


I am always in need for small plastic pots. Now I have around 20 lemon seeds and need a place for them now.

Winkcheap pots


have you tried using foam cups. that is what i use for my H & C 's when i transplant the chicks and i fill em with perlite when i have cuttings to root. you can get a bag of 40 or sometimes 60 8 oz. 1's at the dollar store for a buck. if you use potting soil just poke some holes in the bottom for drainage. and can write the name on the cup with a ballpoint pen. no need for name tags.
works good 4 me
if you gotta have pots try ebay search yard and garden then planters then plastic. shipping is usually exspensive tho

I go to my nursery. They have a bin where people bring there used old plastic pots and trays. I get as many as I need. No money at all.

If you have a Dollar Tree store, they sell 10, 3 inch plastic pots and 5, 5 inch pots for a dollar .. they last about 2-3 years depending on how much direct sun exposure they get.

We have a nursery called Doan's here that sells the trays that hold the cheap plastic vegetable planters and the plastic planters $ 1 each...we bought several trays and several of the flimsy plastic planters. I am not sure if they are only a local nursery or if they are everywhere.
Thanks,
Sandra

plastic pots


Instead of pots, you could use the bottom of a 2 liter soda bottles. I even use the bottom of a 20 oz bottles. It works.
