Ecological, practical and odour free: A plant’s best friend
CowPots are an ecological way to grow strong, healthy plants. These innovative seed starting pots are made from composted cow manure. That’s right, cow manure! Our unique process creates a pot that is environmentally friendly, sustainable and practical.
These earth-friendly “pots you plant” are an easy-to-use alternative to plastic and peat pots.
The pots will hold their form for up to 12 weeks in a greenhouse setting. Within 3 to 4 weeks decomposition is well underway, allowing plants to establish themselves in the new environment. There will be nothing left of the pot by the end of the season.
The naturally porous property of manure enables tender, young roots to easily penetrate the sides and bottoms of CowPots. This allows for air pruning and the formation of root buds and secondary root development throughout the pot. The result is a strong, dense and healthy root system that is critical to growing healthy plants.
EcoCert Canada approves CowPots as an input for organic agriculture.
