Pacific Nursery Pots is a family owned business that has been passed down for three generations. It all started back in 1955, when Angelo Tersini knew that nurserymen were dissatisfied with the ugly salvaged gallon cans they were using. The cans did nothing to help sell the plants. Cans had to be cut in order to remove the plants, and empty, they were piled on top of one another, taking up costly storage room. Cut-throat competition was the rule in the plant container field. To wedge into this market Tersini knew he had to make a better pot at the same price. The next day, Tersini had developed a machine which tapered the can by pressing sharp indentations in the bottom half. The final product looked much like the ridged paper cup one finds beside water coolers. The pots slipped easily into one another. The indentations kept dirt from clinging to the sides. A sharp tap on the bottom and out would come the plant. This pot could be used over and over and solved the problem of dissatisfied nurserymen. Today Pacific Nursery Pots, is the leading Plastic Nursery Pot Distributor in Northern California, and is ran by Rick Tersini.
