Biodegradable Flower Pots

An encouraging sign… by Green Wellies

TheGardenLady readers may already know about biodegradable flower pots, but I just saw them for the first time in a charming local garden  store.  The concept is fantastic and so is the look. Since those of you who take your plants outdoors for the summer will soon be bringing them in, you might want to consider replanting them in these attractive pots that are good for the environment.  Of course, these pots are for anyone  looking for neat pots for your plants.

These biodegradable pots are manufactured in China. The pots are made of materials such as maize straw, corncob, straw, wheat skeleton, bamboo fibers and rice hulls.  Because they are 100% biodegradable, one doesn’t have to worry about recycling them when you want to get rid of them. You can use them outdoors, but they last longer if used indoors. The colors may fade if kept a long time, but the pots will last. They come in various sizes and colors. You can easily make a hole in the bottom of the pot to prepare these pots for drainage so that you can directly plant your plant or you can leave it as is and use it as a cache pot to put a pot in. (I was also told that they make neat votive candle holders because the pot is translucent.) They would make a great fund raiser if you can get them wholesale.  See here.  If you just want the biodegradable pots  for yourself, there are retail websites that sell them if you can’t find them in a local store.
