#8 Pots

The #8 pots we use often change from year to year due price, suppliers or other issues.

We try to use the same #8 pot for our #8 Ornamental Cabbage and Kale, #8 Mums and #8 Poinsettias but it doesn’t always work out that way.

In the past we have used swirl and ribbed designs. While the container has stayed pretty much the same, the visible design has changed. There may be a few pots of the old inventory show up in some plantings.

In the future, we may change back to some of the older designs as availability changes year to year.

We grow all our #10 spring and fall baskets in this container.

#10 Pots

We also use #10 pots to grow our #10 Poinsettias.

We normally use the #10 Hanging Basket container shown above to grow our #10 Poinsettias. In some years we’ve had to substitute other containers but all were approximately the same size as the #10 we used.

Unfortunately we don’t have any pictures that show the pots. We have a lot of pictures of the poinsettias in general but not one with a clear view of the plant and container.
