    Default Plant Pot Sizes

    Hi, does anyone have a table or chart that shows plant pot sizing?

    Sometimes you see them measured in inches, sometimes litres etc etc

    Kind Regards.......Rob

    That's absolutely fantastic MuddyBoots! I'm often *cough* (always!) clueless when descriptions talk about a plant needing a such-and-such litre pot. I just cannot visualise it

    I'm going to print this table out and keep a copy at home in my garden file and a copy on my shed door
