cheap flower pots
From: Lester Kallus <lkallus at earthlink.net> on 1999.05.03 at 05:38:41(3323)|
It's time to stop begging the lower garden center for leftover used
pots. I'm expecting 100 caladium tubers this week and have no idea what
I'm going to be doing with them and don't relish begging for 100 more pots.
Instead, it's time to order. I did so well with my request for cheap
labels that I'm going to ask for cheap flower pots. Any ideas? I'm
looking for 4 or 5" pots and don't mind purchasing 500 or 1000 if that's
the minimum number. Will any of the manufacturing companies deal with such
The 2 companies I see on the web are Lerio at http://www.lerio.com/ and|
Koba at http://www.kobacorp.com/ (although Koba scares me with the word
"wholesale" and doesn't even include a price list). Has anyone dealt with
either company and does anyone know of any other companies?
Incidentally, are 4" pots adequate for size #1 caladium tubers and would
the shallower azalea pots be better?

The best pots I know are by Anderson Die & Mfg. Co., Portland, Oregon,
They are great because they're square and can be stacked to fit a great|
many in a small space.
The sides are straight so no space is wasted. They come in various sizes
but I like the
3 9/16 x 4 1/4 deep band and the 3 9/16 x 4 1/4 deep pot. The band is
more trouble at planting because you have to keep the soil from falling
out until it is compacted. (I use a small square of paper towel). But,
when it comes time to remove the plant, just push the root ball from the
bottom of the band. It
comes out easily and intact. The pots are easy at planting time but have
the usual problems when
removing the plant.
The bad news is they only sell wholesale, which means you have to have a
tax number to buy from
them. Like all wholesale pots, they're not expensive. I believe they come
in cartons of about 268
