Good source for cheap black plastic nursery pots?

Do any of y'all know of a good source for those black plastic nursery pots? I would be willing to wash out old ones instead of buying new ones - trying to be economical you know.

Thanks!

Where are you located? If you are within a few hundred miles of me I can ship them USPS pretty cheaply. I'm in MD. I have hundreds, maybe thousands of used green & black nursery pots in various sizes 4"-30" sitting outside of the greenhouses. The county won't take them for recycling and we don't reuse them in the GH so they pile up.

A year ago I was looking for the same thing. What I ended up doing at the advise of others was going to a landscaper. They have to pay to get rid of them, so they are glad to have you take some for free. They have lots of sizes too!

My local nursery will give me 1 gallon containers,
and will sell me 25-30 containers for a few dollars.

Karen, Behnke's will recycle them. You can just drop them off near where you buy mulch/soil. Christy :)

Hi,
I have rarely found any cheap ones, unless left at the curb on someone planting. Most I buy at Home Depot. are a tad expensive, especially the 7 gallon size. found a wholesale nursery, has 15 gallons cheap but too large for mine, plant gets too big for me to handle.

I know I'm a year behind this thread, but I also could use some 5 gallon tubs, but also the super-sized tubs that are about 18" wide (is that a 9 -10 gallon tub or larger)?

I've tried lots of places in Charlottesville, VA, and they won't even sell them to me.

Anyone have any that they'd be willing to ship to me? I'm happy to pay postage.

Find someone who is in the landscaping business and tell them you are growing plumerias and need some pots. A good landscaper is going through many pots and two I talked to brought me a stack of about 25 fives and a number of larger pots. Just a thought. Also google black nursery pots and you will find tons of places that sell them. Bill

I buy mine on Craig's list. Lots of good deals.

RE: Good source for cheap black plastic nursery pots?

I tried many of my local landscape nurseries and they didn't have any, used or otherwise. Also tried Craigslist, but unless I want a tractor or chickens, I couldn't find any.

I guess I was lucky to pick up the ones that I got sitting outside our local recycle center.

Ebay has some, but prices + shipping = high

Hello,

I will tell you all that I have found the perfect place for those black pots and I would have never guessed. I decided one day to go to a Hydroponics store and there they were just exactly what I was looking for and the prices were great. I hope that works for some of you and good luck I know how hard it was for me to find them at a decent price and not pay what Home Depot wanted for them.

I don't know if the Home Depot stores in your area do this, but the one in my area puts out the used empty pots on a rack outside by the checkout for the garden area, and anybody can help themselves to them.
