|I always manage to snag a few for cheap at one particular nursery. For the prices big pots cost they can be painted too. I had a brugs get big and no way I was going to drop $75-100 on a pretty pot. This one was a little sloppy but after some thief stole a potted plant from my mom's porch last year I was a little hasty with my anger.
Weighs about 100lbs. with the bottom half filled with broken bricks. (the stolen pot was easily 40lbs. and someone walked away with it on a sunny Sunday afternoon)

| , I started using these several years ago, mostly because the native soil was not good. One can sit comfortably and get the gardening tasks accomplished. These are good for the elderly and for people with physical limitations. They are also good for young children just learning to garden as they are a good height for 3 - 5 year olds.
One bonus to planting in these taller containers is that the rabbits cannot reach all the goodies. More strawberries for me!

|I no longer put plants in planters but have kept a few of the larger ones and use them. So much easier then a wheel barrow or even a trash bag.

|Good idea. In addition, I have always had way to many smaller ( 1 gallon) plastic pots. Somehow I just could not throw them away. Then, I finally found a solution: I donate them to Michigan State Hidden Lake Gardens. Turns out they propagate many of the dwarf conifer collection and are always in need of pots!|
