A plant pot needs to be fit for purpose - however there are many purposes for a plant pot, depending on what sort of plant is going to be planted in it. A large pot for a shrub or fruit tree will need to be made of terracotta or earthernware, but frost proof so it can be left outside all round, and it will need to look attractive on your patio or terrace.
A plant pot for layering spring bulbs needs to be quite deep whereas a pot for alpine plants and some smaller bubs needs to be shallower.
A plant pot which is going to be used to pot on growing plants temporarily can be relatively basic, whereas something for more long-term planting needs other qualities.
The price will be according to the type and size of pot.
Sorry, don't suppose that's of much help.
