large/gigantic flower pots

That's the point I don't know where Monty found his pots,or how much they were?,I think he said at the time they were not expensive,so I don't know how much,have asked Gardners World to be kind enough to ask Monty,as he is the one who knows,seems a nice enough sharing guy, would probably not mind telling,so far not heard from Gardeners World,in their interest encourage me to buy more plants to fill large pots,hopefully, will hear something eventually.

Thanking everyone for all the helpful information supplied and taking the time to do so,I am new to this forum was not really expecting an answer,been overwhelmed with all the information and much appreciated,so glad i joined,have been watching Gardners World tv prog.for years,can't think why not joined the forum years ago,never too late.

I must say I am not adverse to re-cycled pots from sales or anywhere else,you can never find when your looking,only find when not looking,I had been thinking about the weight ,when as above KT53 in post the same thoughts, how heavy they would be should you want to move them,even if they were plastic probably not a good idea,had another idea,seen some coloured plastic dustbins guaranteed for 15years against weather conditions very cheaply priced,worth a thought,use some vision.

What a response,thank-you all,I have spent in the past fortunes on all kinds of planters in the belief they would last and be frost proof,I have been deeply disappointed,I have found that the plastic pots are the best they are frost free don't break last for years and you can paint with a masonary paint in a colour of your choice or Cuprinol Shades.

I am sure when Monty Don first introduced these large pots he said they were not expensive,I have asked Gardners World about the pots in an e-mail, if would ask Monty Don directly as he only knows the real answer.

I am going to look into some of your kind helpful ideas of places to buy,I am not sure what CS is?

Thanks again for all your responses.

Following a recent watching of Friday nights gardeners world,I have been trying to source the huge plastic pots seen in Monty Dons garden recently being planted up,I would appreciate if anyone could tell me where to buy these very attractive pots.I have tried looking on the Internet but,so far no luck,perhaps someone would ask Monty Don.
