shallow clay pots

where can I find shallow terra cotta planters?

I’ve looked on the web, at nurseries, box stores, etc., and I can’t seem to find a shallow terra cotta planter. Everything seems too deep for smaller succulents.

I don’t have the guts to try planting in drip pans (yet)

anyone have any suggestions?

How shallow are you after? When I want shallow terra cotta, I get “Fern Pots” which are available at most of my local nurseries. They are definately shorter than standards, although not nearly as extreme as using a saucer. I think a standard 6″ is about 6″ or 7″ tall whereas a 6″ fern pot is about 4″ tall.

Years ago I gave up looking for shallow planters that I liked and took a course in pottery at the local community college. My shallow pots weren’t pretty but the course was fun and someone there made me a bunch of nice shallow pots in exchange for materials, fees and tuition.

Do you have a Garden Ridge near you? They usually have a variety of sizes and shapes of planters.

I have used saucers for terra cotta pots and made some nice mixed plantings with smaller cuttings.
