About our Pots

Please note that actual pot and plant sizes and shapes will vary. Shrubs in the same sized pot as a perennial will cost more as they generally take longer to reach maturity. *Plant sizes, prices, and availability subject to change.

Environmental Impact

The typical garden center/nursery contributes to the problem of the overwhelming number of single-use plastic garden pots in the United States. Approximately 4 billion plastic pots are produced and used every year in the U.S. horticultural industry, using 1.66 billion pounds of plastic. And only a tiny fraction of this is recycled.

Since black plastic pots are dyed with carbon inks they are not recyclable, black plastic is also not scanable by sorting machines. This means they are a single-use plastic, taking around 450 years to decompose.  If you are wishful-thinking-recycling and putting these pots in your household recycling, they are being thrown out by someone else down the line. You can read more about this problem in the links below.

We recognize this problem and want to be a part of the solution. Here are some steps we've taken this year:

We are trying out alternative pots like Root Pouches, woven from recycled plastic.

When we need to buy pots we purchase pots made from recycled plastic.

When you return our pots and tags we will sanitize and reuse them.
