Diamond R has great prices for new pots
Hopefully for that quantity they will even do better?

Diamond R is 10 minutes from my house and their prices are good.
They are located in several places thoughout Florida.
They also would do better on a large order if you ask at my store.

Yes , I am well aware. Do you happen to have Walmarts and McDonalds in Florida because the place I recommend is nationwide and last time I looked CPS ( now Nutrien Ag Solutions) is in Florida. I donít really gloss over location mistakes like that. Highly aware wonderfruit is in FL as it is the one thing you can see everytime someone makes a post.

Hi All,

Wonderfruit's question has got me curious now . . . 

Is there any place in west central Florida (i.e., the Tampa Bay area) closer than Diamond-R in Winter Garden which sells reasonably priced pots like he is looking for, but also in smaller sizes, too, such as 3-, 5-, and 7-gallon ones.

All my small fruit tree seedlings will be needing this year to be moved up into larger pots.

TIA  &  Fingers X-ed!

Read the thread from the top and the answer is revealed.
Nutrien ag solutions is the cheapest wholesaler . They sell every pot size you need .
Let me google that for you says: yes, right near TB.

Whoops, I managed to overlook that in the text when I read thru it the fiirst time and actually, yes, I recognize the place, thanx.  I used to drive past the place years ago when I would go visit my folks in Bartow.  But it was something else back then.

Anyway it's really over in Polk County, not Hillsborough County, which makes it about an hour away, about the same travel time as to Winter Garden via I-4.

Don't mean to sound ungreateful for the info but I was really hoping for something closer in to Tampa. That said I'll try phoning NuAg up and see what they've got.

Cheers!

Its all good Paul. Just want to share the info because you never know until you know, and plenty of things took me a long time to know about , like this place , but now glad I do . I buy local to keep money and tax dollars in the community when can but sometimes you gotta visit a multinational corp that sends the profits back to mordor.

If you go to Facebook Marketplace, I would be surprised if there isn't someone selling used ones real cheap.  Just another option if you are not concerned about them being used.
