The majority of plants sold online by Jacksons Nurseries and in most garden centres across the country come in pots of various sizes. Most pot sizes are referred to by their volume capacity in litres, with the exception of pots that are smaller than 1 Litre which are usually refereed to by the diameter of the top of the pot.
