Well, many people think plastic pot is harmful to our environment as it is still plastic. I can't argue with that but almost every plastic pot you will see is made from recycled materials and can easily be reused. So you can say it is safe to use. Just make sure when you don't have use for it, give it back to the nursery so they can use it or recycle it. If you don't want to give it back, then read the article till the end as I will tell some other purpose that gardening pots can be used for.
Well, it depends on your plant size and type, but you should consider buying a pot that is at least ⅓ of your plant height. There are other things to consider before buying outdoor planters, if you are busy and cannot water your plants daily or if you have a plant that cannot take much heat. Then you should not get the dark color or black plastic pots as it will absorb the heat and make your soil dry up soon. If you don't pay attention to that your plant’s leaves will start to dry up, while on the other hand, you have plants like cactus, etc. You should get only the dark color ones, especially the black one as it will keep the heat inside the soil.
When we buy a plastic pot for our small plants, later when the plants get bigger we usually just throw the plastic pots away. What if you can use that for a lot of other things in your garden only? Won't that be great? Well, lucky you because you actually can use them for other things.
As we all know every pot has holes at the bottom which can be useful while sprinkling fertilizer evenly to your plants.
If it's winter and it's snowing, then you can use your pots to cover up your tender plants. That is not likely to get damaged from the snow and frost.

So you can dig a hole in your garden and put your plastic pot inside that hole and cover it totally with soil, now you can put the plant in it. As the plastic pot will hold the water, that means it will be beneficial for your plant.
