Plastic Pots do serve the purpose and somewhat appear better, but one issue with them is drainage. Ensure that they have quite a few holes in the base.

Generally speaking plastic pots will cost more than clay pots.

I saw some at Awan seeds store, committee chowk.

Have a look at this link. They freight to other cities as well.

W O A

Plastic pots and other Gardening tools can be found at "Metro" Super Market that is on the border of RWP/ISL I believe its I 9 or I 10 near Faizabad Bus stop, not sure if there are some other shops in Pindi could be or must be on muree road

They are not bad for Annuals or Perennials but they have a bit different water need as compare to clay pots as they do not absorb water and they can keep the medium moist for longer than clay pots so make sure you don’t over water your plants

Metro is the best place to get the plastic pots & garden stores at reasonal rates.It is in I-10. These days even clay pots with good finish & designs are available in the market.
