Hi, hope this is in correct section. I wonder why I can get 'left over' plastic pots? I am in the process of increasing stock with cuttings and seeds. I did all my hardwood cuttings in beds. Now I am starting softwoods and seeds which I want to do in pots.
I am looking for alot of them, my local garden centre sometimes hav them at the door to give away but that not really enough. Are they even cheap to buy or where do you get them?
Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Have you tried Freecycle.ORG or FreeTradeIreland.IE ?

They're recycling websites where people can either offer or ask for unwanted items (free of charge). I've seen plant pots offered quite often, so you might be lucky.

The posts are "public", so just be a bit careful about not disclosing your real name, address or email until you make contact with the person offering / taking the items !

GumTree.IE -- whilst not dedicated to free recycling -- includes a free section, so it might be worth checking there too.

I have plenty, of all sizes, near Nenagh. You're welcome to them. Try getting in touch with your local allotments/GIY group. Most gardeners always have more than they need. I suspect that if you put an ad in your local paper or free ads type thing, you'll end up with more than enough.
