I happened to be at the Green Acres Nursery location in Folsom, CA yesterday, and they were closing out two lines of unglazed pottery. Even though I hadn’t meant to buy any pots, this is what I went home with:
The larger pots are 14x15” (width x height), the medium-sized ones 11x12” and the smaller ones 8x10”.
Why did I end up buying 10 pots?
Because they were a bargain!
How much of a bargain? 75% off!
This brought the price of the large ones down to $5.63, the medium-sized ones to $3.88, and the small ones to $1.88. I’m not kidding! For all 10 pots, I paid $34, before tax. How could I pass that up!
I actually did need a larger pot for the Yucca linearifolia near the front door. It had completely outgrown its container.
Here it is in its new pot.
I’m very happy with how well the color of the unglazed pot blends with everything else.
The plant peeking around the corner on the right is Beaucarnea stricta, a relative of the ponytail palm (Beaucarnea recurvata)
Discovered in northern Mexico in the 1980s, Yucca linearifolia was initially thought to be a subspecies of Yucca rostrata. Since then, its has been promoted to species status.
Check out this post from March 2012 to see how much my Yucca linearifolia has grown. In fact all the yucca shown in that post have grown quite a bit; I need to do an update soon.
Back to Green Acres Nursery. The 75% off sale is for two styles of this unglazed pottery from Thailand (the manufacturer is River Cottage Gardens). I don’t know if their other two locations are running this sale too, but it’s worth a call.
Now I need to figure out where to put my new pots and what to plant in them!
