Pots are a bit flimsy,but I love them just the perfect size. You get what you pay for and I will buy again, anywhere else they would be higher in price. Hey if you are worried about the color just paint them with plastic paint. The size is about 3 inch shorter than a real 5 gallon bucket because these are in (trade gallons) looks to be 4.01 gallons
I'm using them for potting peppers and strawberries. The pots are thin and seem flimsy, but I expect that they will last several seasons. They were basically what I expected and the price was better than anything else I found. The plants seem happy, so what else could I ask for?
Using these nursery pots to over-winter pepper plants in a greenhouse and in the corner of the kitchen. The pots, while being thin in thickness are built to be strong. They are drilled for drainage at the sides toward the bottom so one would want to use a drip pan for indoor use.
At qty 10 for $18 these are a bargain. I had initially spent $150 for a similar but thicker product. These meet the basic needs and the pepper plants are thriving!
The pots will crush from compression force, but will hold sturdy to the outward forces exerted from garden soil that is contained within.
I will buy more as needed.
Pros: Durable, Functionality, Strong, over wintering, $ value
These nursery pots are NOT as advertised. They are #5 pots, and are clearly stamped on the pots as 4.2 gallons! On the other hand, if you need a pot this size that is used for light duty, and don't want to spend a lot, then these will fill the bill. They are fairly flimsy, so handle with care. We used them to create a container garden on our deck for miniature raspberries, and used plastic oil pans underneath the pots, creating sort of an economical self watering type system for under 6 bucks each....
Ordered two 10 packs. The pots are thin. Many pots had splits at the bottom drain holes. I had the use the second pack to get a full good 10 pack. I just transplanted some one gallon shrubs for a year. I'm thinking they will last that long. Check the bottom of all pots before you leave the store.
I will be using most of these containers in the coming Spring.I have been using my 3 gallon containers but alas, they have grown larger and need to be placed in these larger containers. I have searched the web, including local box stores and nurseries and have not been able to obtain these sizes at a reasonable price. I certainly would recommend these containers for anyone shopping for a bargain! Aloha, Keoni
Cheap pots. No quality but purchased to be disposable. Free shipping + inexpensive pots made this a good deal. Searched the Net for a better value and could not find any when you consider the cost of shipping.
Pros: Functionality, Good Shape, cheap

Review 9 for 5 gal. Nursery Pots (10-Pack)
Good price, poor workmanship in drilling drain holes
I was disappointed that some of the pot's drain holes weren't drilled properly, some holes weren't even round, more like a slash, very poor workmanship. But they shipped them anyway. I guess you get what you pay for! Other pot holes were drilled symmetric as designed. That's the disappointment, shipping the faulty pots with the good ones, and it's so obvious that the drain holes were grossly misaligned
I have shopped large nursery pots all over the web and these are absolutely the best deal I have found. And the quality is as good if not better than other more expensive pots I've purchased, Some may say they are "flimsy" or not high quality but I think these are people who have not purchased nursery pots before and are expecting the heavier plastic (and much heavier priced) decorative planters. That's not what these are and they don't claim to be! These are good quality 'nursery' pots. The best I've found for this price.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Strong, Great Quality, Good Shape
They are exactly what I wanted. I have several that I have had for years outside that have withstood the elements. My gardens are mostly container gardening so that I can rearrange plant groupings easily and also cut down on weeding. I paint these with Fusion plastic spray paint to add color in my yards. Such a good deal.
The only area in my yard that gets enough sun to grow vegetables in on my deck. These inexpensive pots allow me to do just that. I didn't want to make a huge investment in pots, because it defeats the purpose of growing my own vegetables. These are great.
If these pots are imperial 5 gal size I'll eat the thing with a little mayo. There is no way these are 5 gal. I know that the nursery industry measures differently BUT these are more like 3 gal where I come from.
As for longevity I certainly can't speak BUT I know flimsy and these are that, they remind me of a trash bag on steroids.
My wife has started a container garden on our deck that required over 100 containers. These were a great value. The pots are not super high quality, but seem to be durable enough, especially for the price.
