Clay pots are probably the best in terms of quality and suitability for growing different kinds of plants. However these pots are very fragile and will break into multiple pieces if they are not handled carefully. So if proper packaging is not available for the pot, it is not advisable to purchase the clay pot.
It is also not very easy to find a retailer for clay pots in a small town. Only in a exhibition or trade fair can a hobby gardener find clay pots for his or her garden, Usually a trade fair will be held once a quarter and the local potters will display clay pots and other pottery items including home decor items for sale.
The cost of the pot will also vary. A few months ago, the potter was charging Rs 30 for a small size pot, now the price has been increased to Rs 60. Pottery suppliers can send their details and prices to firstname.lastname@example.org
