Whether it be plastic or clay, make sure the pot you select has drainage holes in the bottom to prevent over-watering. The benefits of using plastic garden pots Gardeners are always looking for pots that can compliment the plants they grow. Plastic garden pots are the answer to most of the challenges that gardeners face because of a variety of benefits. 1. Highly Durable Plastic is durable. High quality plastic does not crack easily. Unlike clay pots, plastic pots are not absorbent. Steel pots on the other hand rusts over time due to the moisture. 2. Easy to handle and maintain Due to various reasons potted plants need to be moved and plastic pots are much easier to move. 3. Retains moisture Unlike clay pots, plastic pots retain moisture and therefore potted plants do not have to be watered as much.
