Here is my best explanation:

'greenhouse containers' is the definition.

'pots' can be an answer for 'containers' (pot is a kind of container). I am not sure about the 'greenhouse' bit.

'supports without spur' is the subsidiary indication.

'without' suggests deleting specific letters.

'supports' with 'spur' taken out is 'pots'.

'in' is the link.
