Deep square flowerpots for Erythronium/ Galanthus
« on: August 10, 2022, 01:02:30 PM »
Hello, does anybody know where I can get strong 10cmx 10cm (ish) deep black plastic flowerpots?

Iím looking for something sturdy to plant up erythronium and snowdrop bulbs and want taller one for things that like deep planting.

I think you'd be better with deeper pots- at least 13cm deep, for young erythronium and galanthus.
Deeper the  better.
 There are various threads on plastic pots in the form, though some are quite old!

Try to search for a retailer of Bamaplast IT in the UK, cheap and long lasting PPE pots.
