I got news for you. Those are the black blow molded plastic pots. In the thinner version, the largest pot is 4 gallon size. For the large 30x20 containers, 2 years ago, I paid a little over $10 a piece for them at McConkey. When I got some from them 3 months ago, I paid $84 for 5 of them. It could be because of the cost of oil, and at that time, gas was hovering at $4.00/gallon.
If you know of a place where I can get them for 1/10th of that price, please let me know. It'd certainly be a big help for me, since I have to have my plants in containers so I can move them under cover for the winter.
