Cheap Garden Pots

Cheap garden pots typically refer to plastic plant pots. Cheap, durable, lightweight, and available in a wide range of colors, finishes and styles, plastic really is the cheap garden pot of choice.

Mass production now allows for very low cost ceramic pots – although the quality of these pots can vary greatly. Some budget pots can be as well made as the more expensive ones; however it is also possible to buy cheap pots that will not last the winter.

As the quality of low cost ceramic pots can vary so greatly, it is always advisable when purchasing cheap garden pots to choose plastic. The only recommendation for plastic pots is to insure they are made from ultra violet protected plastic.

Although there are now many online stores selling gardening equipment – including cheap garden pots, probably the cheapest place to buy the pots would be from a superstore such as Wal-Mart, Asda, Morrisons, etc.

Supermarkets can usually offer plant pots much cheaper then even your local garden centre, and even if an online garden centre has pots at a lower cost, you must take into consideration the postage / shipping charges.

Two exceptions to buying online – are either eBay – purchasing second hand pots and collecting from the seller could get you a real bargain. It has even been seen that the pots are given away and the seller just wants someone to collect them. Buying online in bulk could also save you lots of money if you need a large quantity of pots.
