large/gigantic flower pots

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.

Thanks-so-much

    Hi Madeleine - I've just 'watched again' and I don't think they were plastic - think they were terracotta

    Lots available out there, at all sorts of prices depending on how frost-resistent they are.  I can't afford hundreds of pounds so I buy the cheaper ones knowing that if the weather gets very cold indeed I'll either have to bubble wrap them or risk them crumbling/cracking.  Putting them up on little feet will help to guard against that happening.

    Might need to remortgage the house Madeleine!

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I looked at some 'reconstituted stone' pots a while back FG - you are right, £70 to £seriousamountofdosh!

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Them's "proper" pots, Dove, at very "proper" prices!image

    BTW, I always say "spend as much on the hole as on the plant going in it" but I don't know where to buy plants that expensive!  Hmm, maybe one of those diamond encrusted gold trees which grow in Fairyland?!
