I am looking for some large planter pots. About 16"-24" or there about. Seems like around Fort Worth they are hard to find or too expensive.
thanx

Ck Marshall Pottery in Marshall, TX. Lots of good deals! The price depends on what they have on special. Great area to spend the night & ck out (Jefferson, etc.).

You never know what you might find at CCA (Christian Community Action) stores or Goodwill, for that matter. For bargains on many things go to www.biggerbetterbargains.com. Search in the top 100 rated stores for the Metroplex! I know there are some great pottery places on the list. :wink:

I have seen some pots that size at the Weatherford Farmer's market but I haven't been out there since last year. It's not so far for you to drive and it's fun besides. Maybe worth the trip!

While you are there, should you decide to go, see the State Champion Pecan tree, it is quite an amazing tree! Age estimation is that this tree is over 1000 years old![/img]

I have gotten great HUGE pots at Garden Ridge - they often have them at 30 or 50% off, so watch for sales. I used to get clay, but the large ones are so heavy. So a couple years ago, I tried the foam pots that look like clay. I have been very pleased with how they are holding up - even the one my chickens and cats have decided to use as a resting spot. Just be sure to poke holes into the bottom of them before filling (I used a screw driver). Mary

Next I need a Japanese maple I want to put in it. Someone told me that a nursery on Division st. in Arlington had good prices for Japanese Maples but didn't have a name. Guess I'll go look.

What kind of Japanese Maple are you going to get? There are many from which to choose. I suggest purchasing from Redenta's or from a place it is grown organically. The ones grown organically are more healthy.
