Plastic plant pots are increasingly in demand as they are gradually superceding most other types of pots when it comes to growing plants.
Overall they are extremely durable, but can break if lifted by the rim when full.
They are ideal for growing a variety of plants and vegetables, and they are used extensively for growing tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers and the like, although for displaying flowers and small shrubs you may prefer something more decorative.
The upside is that plastic pots are easy to keep clean, and do not dry out as quickly as clay and terracotta pots tend to. They are not particularly expensive to buy, but if you need a lot then the bill can still add up to quite a lot.

If you want pots that are more appealing than plastic ones then these Ceramic Jade Garden Planters are very attractive, and good quality too. The larger one is even bigger than I expected with a 10 inch opening and stands 9.5 inches tall.
The medium one is the size of most larger pots that you get in sets of 3 pots that are similar. The whole set is really superb.
