I'm really struggling to find decent sized ones, or any to be honest lol. MIL & I went to a garden centre and they had some, but the prices were just outrageous! I've looked online, but so many don't give the diameter. I want at least 3, to accommodate house plants that are/ will be a couple of feet tall. Am I missing somewhere obvious that sells them??Ive got an IKEA bout 20 mins from me that I'm sure sells them but don't think I could cope with the hour it would take to even get round the store!

B&M, The Range, Dunelm

B&Q, Homebase

take the shortcut round Ikea - you don't need to go all the way round the upstairs there is normally a way to go up and go straight down.

B&M, the range, homebargains

Aldi Lidl, might be worth looking at their middle aisles

Some of the supermarkets as well - I know my local sainsburys and marks and spencers keeps a  range in

Yep I've looked in Lidl, Sainsburys, had forgotten about Dunelm, B & M... 

Haven't been in IKEA for so long that I've almost forgotten what it looks like lol. It has always just been the sheer size of our store that puts me off - absolutely massive. But if I can take a shortcut then great!

The large DIY places sometimes sell them (e.g. B&Q), but most seem expensive now. 

Our local IKEA have one or two signposted short-cuts but I do sympathise - I hate tramping through all sorts of areas in which I have no interest to reach the right area, and then the continuing trek to get to the tills.

Haven't bought from them but they show measurements.

Ahh brilliant - Thanku all for the suggestions, and thanku so much for the links to pics Moorea7 & Ellipsis. Some great ideas there! x

They have a good range in Poundstretcher and in Poundland.

garden centres?

What kind of houseplants do you mean? Big proper garden centres (the type that also sells gifts etc etc ) always have a good selection of houseplants. 

I've never been in a B&M or Dunelm so can't comment but my local Range sells some garden plants, lots of artificial ones too but I've never seen living houseplants in there.

I've gotten a lot of mine from tkmaxx. 

Try Freecycle.

Prudie - wish is was easy to post pics on here but I've 3  house plants between 1-2 feet high, so it's for them..

Will look at all the other suggestions too, including free cycle.

As said before - have looked at garden centres and they charge the earth! 

There are a lot of pots on E-Bay.

What kind of plants are they?

/// they charge the earth ////  Pun intended ?
