Morrison's plastic flower buckets.
North Yorkshire, United Kingdom
I could phrase this as a question by starting with 'Does anybody know about?' and 'cheat' like Noseypotter did with his Christmas wishes lol. But just in case you don't know and have a Morrison's near you, they sell off their old plastic flower buckets (about 12" across and 15" deep) in batches of minimum 8 for 99p. Drill some drainage holes in the bottom and they are brilliant plant pots. Black as well so they absorb the heat. I was in there yesterday and saw several stacks of 32 with tape on saying 8 for 99p. So I picked up a stack and when I got to the till with my bread and margarine I noticed that when scanned, instead 3.96 it registered 99p. Being of the honest type I pointed it out to the lady on the till.' No' she said, ' Depends how many we have. If we have loads we bundle them in anything up to 32s. And it is still 99p. We just want rid of them.'
So my large black plastic plant pots are costing me 3p each plus 10 seconds each with a drill. Just thought others would like to keep an eye open.
