I seem to collect pots as I go, adding to the collection whenever I see something really special. I am willing to spend for something good, and hopefully have it a lifetime, rather than get pots for half the price or less that flake or otherwise deteriorate. I always see nice mossy things by Campo de Fiori (wholesale, but you can locate a retailer carrying their stuff on their website): http://campodefiori.com/Entrantz/pottery.html If you want faux lead and other quality classical stuff, which I don’t have in my garden because my place is too rural-looking for it, Campania is a high-quality maker. They also have simpler, modern designs in faux stone looks (and again, they have a retailer locator on their wholesale site): http://www.campaniainternational.com/ But most of my pots have been picked up along the way whenever I see them, which is why I always stop in at a new nursery when I pass it, just in case. Especially high-end nurseries, where maybe I’m not willing to pay double for a begonia or tomato plant, but I might invest in a gorgeous pot. That’s my strategy…meaning it took some time to assemble the lineup of pots!
