We’ve added larger sizes for growing out transplants, starting dahlias and begonias indoors, and pre-planting annual flowers before setting them into decorative pots. Cowpots are the invention of Matt and Ben Freund, two Connecticut dairy farmers who were looking for an environmentally responsible way to dispose of cow manure. The manure is dried, completely composted, mixed with natural fibers, and pressed into pots. Gardeners love Cowpots because they are odorless and free of weed seeds. Plants love Cowpots too, because transplant shock is greatly reduced. Best of all, Cowpots are 100% biodegradable. They last for up to one month in a greenhouse or on a windowsill, but will dissolve within weeks after planting in the garden, providing essential organic nutrients to your plants.
Made of composted cow manure
6" Cowpot is 6" square at top, 4-1/5" square at base and 6" H

Cowpots are biodegradable, keeping plastic waste out of the landfill. And they're not only made from a renewable resource, they're taking a potential pollutant out of the waste stream. They're made in the U.S. by farmers, and they grow happy seedlings. What's not to love?
