New to gardening or urban farming, and wondering where to buy plant pots in Singapore? Whether you are seeking common or fancy plastic pots, rustic or painted terracotta pots, or stylish, perhaps quirky looking plant pots, there are lots of options locally. Here are some of my personal recommendations of where you can find pots to suit any space.
Lightweight, affordable and practical, plastic pots are also better at retaining moisture than terracotta pots. However the lower quality pots may not last more than a few years, depending on how much sunlight it is exposed to. This is due to photodegradation from UV rays.
One thing that bothers me about some types of plastic posts is how it can get powdery as it deteriorates, and that is when I throw them out because I don’t want this plastic dust getting into my soil, especially for my edible plants.
I tend to veer towards the larger, long planters, which I can use to grow a mix of plants in, although it ends up being harder to move around.
Here are some places where you can find plastic pots:
Practically a one-stop shop for all things gardening, World Farm is pretty much the most affordable place to buy essential gardening items and they have a massive variety of ornamental, fruiting, flowering plants and edible herbs. The physical store stocks a variety of plastic pots and planters, and you can find the commonly used plastic pots in different sizes here, they also have colourful, small round ones. Find them at 15 Bah Soon Pah Road in Yishun.
