Sizes of 10 gallon and 15 gallon pots

Sometimes I find pots with measurements instead of gallons listed. Does anyone know the approximate size of 10 gallon and 15 gallon pots? Just trying to compare.

I have my greenhouse supply catalog sitting right here on my desk and it lists the following measurements, in inches:

10-Gallon 14 1/2 X 14 1/2
10-Gallon, squat 17 1/4 X 12
15-Gallon 17 1/4 X 15 1/4
15-Gallon, squat 19 1/2 X 12
20-Gallon 19 1/2 X 17
20-Gallon, squat 22 1/4 X 13 1/8
25-Gallon 22 1/4 X 18

“10-Gallon 14 1/2 X 14 1/2 “

Wow. I happen to know that actual 5-gallon mud buckets are 14 x 14 inches. I have wondered why people describe using such huge pots. Maybe the answer is that nursery pots are only half as big as they claim to be.

Thank you, Connie, that is super helpful.

Michael, what is a mud bucket?

Also I am a little confused b/c people tell me to get nothing less than a 24 inch pot but now I see that a 25 gallon pot is actually a lot smaller than that.

Thanks, Connie, I’ve always been confused by all the references to ‘gallons’ since up here, pots are only labeled in inches/centimetres. Now I can use this list as a guide.
I have been unable to find anything bigger than 22″ (25 gal) in the stores near my house. I can’t even find a half whiskey barrel, just a smaller imitation that they sell in the garden centres. Maybe I just have to start hitting all the distilleries in town and beg for their discards:)

22″ pots in the store are not going to be properly corresponded with “gallons.” There are formulas (that I don’t feel like looking up right this moment) to determine the volume of a cylinder, which, in essence, a pot is. Store pots are wider at the top than at the bottom, thus volume has to be calculated differently. Measure across the TOP of a store pot, then across the BOTTOM and divide by two. Then use that number as your diameter and plug it into the formula to find your volume. My 20″ pots are only about 4 gallons, so a 22″ store pot is NOT going to be 25 gallons. Typical household trash cans are around 13 gallons.
