im looking for really big plastic pots.. mostly for potting up
my biggest amorphophallus corms.. plastic pots in 40 gal + size
not the squat ones.. but with some height..
im in utah..but open to have them shipped in if i have to..
You might check with some of the local ranchs, some buy tubs of minerals for the livestock. They may not be as large as you want but it would be a start. The trashcan idea also sounds good, some have wheels. Good luck. Fred
My drycleaner gets chemicals in what look like half barrels. He saved a bunch and used them as planters in front of his business. also you might get food barrels and cut them in half. Also some nurseries or landscape services discard tree containers after an installation. You might ask about saving them for you.
I second what Steadycam says about asking a local nursery/landscape business to save some of their containers for you. Many will do that, including the nursery where I work. We make it a habit to save containers because there are always customers who come in needing one (or 3) of a certain size... DEFINITELY worth checking into!!
Thank you, Nut! =) (heehee, that name just sends me into gales of giggles!)
I'm quite certain my neighbors think I'm nuts too, but probably for different reasons. Might have something to do with singing LOUDLY while I've got my iPod plugged into my head (and it's often Latino music that I'm singing, HA!). =)
lol..way to go speedie !!!
one thing were not.. boring..:)
i tell my neighbours..if we ever have flooding here..and im high
ground here.. im selling tickets..:) LOL
im getting some good ideas from posts here on "making" my own
huge pots.. big 55gal heavy plastic garbage cans look like a possible
good way to go..
and putting in calls to local landscaping places..
i gather up plastic pots every yr..and sure enough..i always have uses
some i give offshoots/separations to plants to friends..and pot them up
in 2 gal pots..luckily they do find their way home..
speedie..u keep singin your music !!!!!!!!!!!
... I wonder how one of those really big square trash cans on wheels would work for you.. you'd be able to move it around more easily, AND you'd have great drainage with the clearance from the ground. Just an idea. =)
Hey, how are your spinach and lettuce doing!? < =)
great ideas.. much thanks.. ive been at several big box stores..
and getting a ton of ideas.. never would have thought of without u all
i was almost going to start lettuce/spinach today.. temps in south facing
