Textured terra cotta design adds visual interest to your garden
Order was cancelled twice and when I did get pots they did not have design likeolike the ordered I used them but the design is not the one I ordered. It was very hard to get pots. I called Hayward, San Leandro, Fremont they said they had them but when we got there they couldn't find them.
Using several for tomato and pepper plants. Perfect size and they have a much nicer appearance; suitable to be out in visable areas of the yard. Priced appropriately to size and appearance. Original plan was to use the cheaper large plastic pots, and build wooden boxes to hid them in. This was considerably less trouble and better looking.
I have 10 of these, and no one sells anything this size for anywhere near this price.
But beware! Nearly half the pots at the stores are cracked, because they're packed improperly for shipping. They're "nested" inside each other and stacked vertically, so any vertical shock tries to expand the pot, and clay has horrible tensile strength. If they were stacked with spacers in between they'd probably survive a lot better, and Home Depot would make a lot more money.
Before you buy one, remove it from the shelf, empty it of any stacked pots, and then rap it firmly with your knuckles. It should ring like a bell. If it doesn't, it's cracked.
If you find uncracked units, they're great!
And don't nest them when you drive them home, unless you put spacers between them.
Notes on my photos: the two larger pots near the dragonfruit (with the banana and the fruiting pineapple) were more than $50 each, and they're only slightly bigger than this pot.
