Can You Tell Me Where I Can Find 8″ Plastic…

Brenda Asked

Can you tell me where I can find 8″ plastic pots? I have tried to find them online, but my computer skills are limited. I will need about 300 pots, so I’ve been told I would want to get them wholesale. Can you help?

The Gardener’s Answer

Hello, Brenda: It sounds like you intend to do a lot of planting! There are places where you can purchase 8” plastic nursery pots. Wholesale prices are not always available to the home gardener. Most companies require you to be a licensed grower or a garden center/nursery before you can receive this price discount. Buying in bulk may give you a price break. Here are a couple of places to look on the Web:

If you are ever in Louisville, you can purchase these nursery pots at Premium Horticulture Supply. They are located at 915 E. Jefferson Street. Their phone number is (502) 582-3897. I could not find a Web site for them, but I know they sell to the public and they may be willing to ship them to you. You might also check with your local garden centers. If they are not growing themselves, they may be happy to let you recycle these plastic pots. You could also contact your County Cooperative Extension Service and ask the horticulture/agriculture agent if they know where you can purchase them locally. Nelson County Master Gardeners may also be helpful in locating these containers.
