Looking to buy Flower Pots?

So, you’ve got beautiful preened flowerbeds brimming with life and vivid colour, but your patio still looks a little bland - plant pots are the perfect purchase to brighten up all areas of your garden! With a range of outdoor plant pots available on OnBuy - from temporary plastic plant pots while your seedlings are still maturing, to traditional terracotta plant pots and everything in between - you can add natural decoration to your patio with trees, shrubs, or flowers. The possibilities are endless!

If you're in the midst of creating a summer seating paradise, find a design to complement your furniture and complete the natural environment. Thanks to OnBuy, outdoor décor has never been so easy! You could even add a decorative stand that gives you the freedom to grow multiple flowers and combine them in one gorgeous display. Just don't forget to accessorise your large flower pot with a liner to preserve the inside and promote healthy growth!

What’s the best material for outdoor plant pots?

There’s no single pot that’s perfect for everyone; each material has its own benefits when it comes to kitting out your patio area. For a traditional look, terracotta pots are the best pick. The rust-coloured clay is an iconic look and probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think about flower pots. If that’s what you’re looking for, great - dive right in and pick one out!

The only downside to terracotta and ceramic pots - which come in a huge number of different designs and colours - is their fragility. If you’ve got playful pets prone to darting around the garden, it won’t take much for the pots to crack and chip. If you need something that can stand up to that, plastic plant pots or wooden, barrel-like pots are a fantastic way of brightening up your outdoors without running the risk of easy breakages.

Does the size of plant pots matter?

Like humans, plants need room to grow - you wouldn’t wouldn’t expect an oak tree to squeeze into the same pot and an orchid! You need to make sure your pot, whatever it’s made from, is deep enough and wide enough to allow all the roots to breath and hold enough soil to retain moisture for the plant. It would be worthwhile doing a bit of digging into the needs of your chosen plants before picking out a pot.

The other reason: while our plant pots are well decorated, the main focus is the flowers. You wouldn’t want a massive ceramic pot holding one tiny sapling that’s now being overshadowed. While you could wait for it to grow big enough to hold its own outdoors, OnBuy has a handy range of plastic planters to grow your seeds in before you replant it outside, including trowels, plastic planters, and food to make sure it has everything it needs to grow.

Flower pots FAQs

Can beans be grown in flower pots?

Yes, as long as the pot is large enough and the growing media is of good quality. It depends on the climate, but you can get a decent harvest of beans grown in flower pots.

Are plastic flower pots recyclable?

This largely depends on your local recycling facility and the type of plastic used. Check the bottom of your pot - you should find a triangle symbol that indicates the type of plastic used - and call your local recycling centre for more information if you're unsure.

Should flower pots have holes?

Absolutely! To prevent root rot, plant pots need to have good drainage. Small holes at the bottom of the pot allow water that is not absorbed to drain freely while providing much-needed air to the roots. Various plants have different drainage needs, so it's a good idea to tailor the type of pot to the plant you wish to grow.

Should I put rocks in the bottom of a plant pot?

Contrary to popular belief, putting rocks in plant pots doesn't improve drainage or air circulation. If the drainage holes are on the large side, you could cover them with a rock to prevent soil from leaking out of the bottom. Water should still be able to flow freely through the pot this way. 

Do plant pots need saucers?

Saucers can be useful, depending on the plant, the pot, and the weather. If your plant needs a lot of moisture or needs to be bottom-watered, a saucer is a great choice. The roots will absorb water as needed, preventing overwatering and root rot.
