Garden Containers

Have we got containers! Both our stores have an abundance of sizes, shapes and materials to choose from for all your plant needs.

We have stoneware and galvanized metal; colorful plastic pots and ones made of recycled bamboo; wooden planters and of course an abundance of terra cotta, to name but a few of the offerings.

We have containers for everything from the tiniest bonsai to tall trees and shrubs; special orchid pots to help yours thrive; self-watering pots with their own water-holding reservoir, to keep your water-loving plants happy.

Each store’s selection is unique, so you have double the chance of finding the perfect container!

Here is an overview of our selection:


Stoneware, stoneware, stoneware

The selection of sizes, shapes, colors and patterns just continues to grow, and we are dazzled by each new shipment. Come take a look! (And, if you find one without a drain hole but you'd like one, we can drill it for you in just a few minutes' time)

Bruning Pottery


Bruning Pottery is classic Pacific Northwest style and colors. They come to us from a family-run business in Snohomish, Washington; specializing in high-fire ceramics with elegant glazes they have developed themselves over the years. Additionally, they have introduced a line of more rustic slab pots in natural, minimally-glazed hues. Long been a favorite of our customers.



There is an assortment of shapes and sizes, everything from neutrals and faux terra cotta to neon-bright.


Sizes from small tabletop to the large black or green or red Madison series for deck or patio.

Recyclable and Biodegradeable


Ella has a line of self-watering (water reservoir) containers, in angular modern shapes and earthy colors. They are lightweight and recyclable.


Rosso’s line of sturdy biodegradable bamboo containers come in a few different rich colors and shapes.

And last, but not least

We still carry a wide selection of Anderson nursery pots in a range of sizes. Likewise Western Pulp Pots and Akro-Mills heavyweight plastic containers in brown, terra cotta and dark green.
