I'm looking at building a flower pot smoker. In talking with some people on various forums, it seems Lowe's and Home Despot tend not to have the larger Terra Cotta Flower Pots (17-18 inch) or the terra cotta bowls.

Are there any nurseries that people might know offhand that I can pick this stuff up at?

Did you ask a Lowe's associate about a special order? They won't stock merchandise that doesn't have enough demand but they have a huge array of products they can order for you, some of it delivered right to your door.

From looking around I've found that the pots are extremely heavy, making it somewhat impractical to ship. I've not been able to stop by either store yet, however.

And google isn't helping for garden places yet.

I did manage to get an 18 inch pot from Lowe's for like $15. I got the burner from Walgreens... now I just need the top, and I'm having absolutely 0 luck with google atm. I'm finding plenty of custom pottery places, but they have nothing like I need.

I'm literally about to flip my lid. I called Midwest Gardens in Ozark and Wickman's in Springfield and neither have what I need right now. It could just be the time of year, but that can't be all fo it.
