Re: Re: OT Flower Pots


So, Char, tell us what you are potting in all these nursery containers.

One reason I like the Morton cntrs that I mentioned is that they are rather
soft material.  I label my plants with a nylon tag gun and it's much easier
to get the needle through these than through some of the heavier, stiffer
ones.  I have always purchased from Morton the bundle sizes which for trade
gallons was, I believe, 75.  I notice that they now have removed the bundle
quantity info from their site.  I don't see anything re minimums.
