    cheapest place to get square pots?

    I have limited room on a rectangular shelf, so I want to convert to square pots. Where can I get some of the bigger ones (4"-10") for cheapest?

    He only has 3.5", and I need bigger than that. Mostly 4.5 and 5.5". I found 5.5" pots for 58 cents a piece...I think that's the best I'll get.

    Ummm 20-30. Any chance you can beat 28 cents a pot (that's the cheapest I've found them so far)?

    There's a nursery around here that usually just gives me square pots for free, but I feel bad going in there and grabbing like 30 at a time without buying anything, so I'm trying to explore my other options.

    28 cents a pot shipped? Nope. We'd prolly be looking at $5.49 for $10.00 Plus shipping... looks like 30 would cost $7.40 to ship. So final after shipping cost would be about $.80 a pot. There are cheaper pots out there, that are a flimsy plastic (vacuum formed and such, generally recognized by a small flap over lip at the top). If you're looking for a long term pot, that will stand the test of time, use, and abuse I advise against those.

    Edit: D_m- Do you have some of those sitting around? Do you have an accurate shipping scale? I'd love to know how much 10 of them weigh (in oz) to help compare the quality.

    But they only sell wholesale so you need a resale license and you have to buy in bulk by the case. Depending on what you buy it can work out to about 10 to 20 cents a pot. Of course you have to buy 500 to 1000 at a time.

    You can always unload them on eBay for an indecent profit.

    Andrew's prices are very good.
