wanted: 4 hanging pots - 14 inch

Pearisburg, VA(Zone 7a)

I have overwintered my ferns but need to find 4 plastic hanging pots in a 14 inch. Color doesn't matter - I can paint them. Let me know if you have 4 and what you would like in return plus shipping.

Thanks,

Lowes and Home Depot sell hanging pots.

he largest I saw were 12 inch and they were $8 each. I hoped someone had old pots around, like I normally do, that were free or cheap except for the shipping. Never hurts to ask.

Have you called any landscapers in your area to ask them if they have any laying around?

Also, if you have wire laying around, it's easy to make your own:

Get an awl or large spike nail, WEAR heat-resistant gloves, heat the nail over an open flame and make equi-distant holes in the rim of a RIGID pot, let it re-harden, insert the HEAVY wire, use pliers to twist it into a hook, and there you have it - a hanging pot. I make a lot of my own hanging pots. ALSO, buckets make good hanging pots.

Thanks. I have a 1910 home and the wrap around porch demands ferns. Trying to over winter them is a pain but can be very expensive to replace every year - I 've cut it back to 5 along the front of the porch and not down the side.

I thought about making my own since this would be an ongoing spring plant that needs larger pots than are sold - with the fern. They are always root bound. I'm pretty crafty but wasn't sure a basic plastic pot would support the weight. If thought finding them would be an easy fix verses buying more pots (new). What gauge wire do you use for a plant that large?

Baler wire - 14 guage in 2 1/2 foot lengths should do it.

I'll give it a try. Thanks!
