where can I find black plastic containers cheap

farfraeSeptember 20, 2008

I am dividing a lot of perennials for myself and some folks at work. I have run out of containers that I saved. Are there any garden centers in the Lancaster, PA area that would part with some of their black plastic containers for free or say a token price of 10 cents per container?

I went to SKH (Lititz location) this morning and they were willing to part with some for $1.00 each, used containers no less. I said "no thanks". This makes me less enthusiastic about their prices and all the plants I bought over the years.

I wanted to get this project wrapped up but it may have to stretch out over this week. I'll use small cardboard boxes if I have to.

Too bad you don't live closer to Chambersburg...I have quite a few saved up. I usually take them to the Amish nurseries after I have a stack.

If you are still looking, head over to River Road Produce on 441 between Marietta and Bainbridge. Wes will be more than happy to let you take his used pots. I think he is closing November 1st.....

I got a couple free from the Stauffers in Rohrerstown.. I think it might depend who you ask in the nursery.. some of the clerks looked at me like I was nuts and some looked at me like they didn't know what I was talking about.. I found them up by the checkout near the information desks.

This place is a treasure trove of repurposed stuff. they recycle everything and people bring in household items to resale. There is a big section of plastic pots in the corner of the property. It's in Pottstown right off of 422.

Someone used to give me plants from her garden just in a grocery plastic, double-bagged, watered.
Kind of forced me to plant them right away.
