CowPots™ is an American company committed to providing high quality, biodegradable, plantable pots, primarily used for seed starting and transplants.
CowPots™ are 100% biodegradable, natural, sustainable, recycled and eliminate the need for plastic because it’s the bio pot you plant! CowPots™ are the only pots made from cow manure. They decompose, biodegrade, and add value to the garden, all while managing the excess nutrient problem that all dairy farmers face. CowPots™ is one innovative way to move these nutrients from where there is excess supply (the farm) to areas of need - family gardens.
Though similar in form and function to peat pots, CowPots™ offers additional benefits that make them the pot of choice for many people.
The greatest benefit is for the plant - CowPots™ help reduce the issue of transplant shock. Because CowPots™ decompose much faster than peat or other seed starting pots, there is no need to tear the pot walls to expose the roots. Roots will grow freely through the walls of the CowPots™ which give the plants a better start.
When ready to plant, simply grab the plant by the stem and place it in the hole. By not disturbing the roots, the plants survival chances are greatly enhanced. Once planted, CowPots™ actually attract microorganisms in the soil that benefit the plant.
