Like many growers, I have the bulk of my collection in pots, with only the larger specimens planted out in the garden beds. Of the plants in pots, the majority are in square plastic containers that are loaded into plastic trays for ease of movement and transportation. I like plastic pots because they are portable, cheap and easy to repot from. However, I realise a lot of members here use and prefer ceramic pots. My experience with ceramic pots has been tainted by shattered pots, excessive weight and difficulty in repotting. However, they do look nice. So, what other benefits does growing in ceramic confer?
