    This probably sounds super dorktastic, but I hate the sloping sides of those mortar tubs. IMO they make suitable minibogs but just suck at space-efficiently holding containers.

    Well I found a temporary solution. Turns out these 39L under-bed storage tubs are the perfect size for 10 gallon nursery pots.

    Just keep in mind that those types of storage containers degrade in sunlight in 18-24 months: they turn brittle and crack into pieces if you flex them. They are indeed temporary.

    That doesn't surprise me at all. I probably have some some horticultural plastic laying around I could line it with to block the UV.

    Yeah I just replaced three of those transparent storage containers this weekend, brittle as egg shells after about 18 months and that's with UK sun. I think the transparent plastic degrades quick, I did replace with exactly the same though:-)
