Biodegradable, Eco-Friendly Cowpots™ for Transplants

  • Completely biodegradable pots make seedstarting easy
  • Transplant seedlings, pot and all, directly into garden, reducing transplant shock
  • Pots add nutrients to the soil as they degrade

Plants thrive in these award-winning biodegradable transplant pots. Cowpots™ are the patent-pending 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 months in the greenhouse or windowsill, but will dissolve within weeks after planting in the garden, providing essential organic nutrients. We are very excited about Cowpots, and recommend them to any gardener who wants to increase plant health and reduce waste.

100% Biodegradable
  • Made of composted cow manure
  • 100% biodegradable

        Comments about Biodegradable Cowpots™:

        I bought the small 2+inch pots & planted both Sungold Cherries & some Beefsteak tomatoes about a month ago. So far, all the seedlings have grown about 3 inches, getting 2nd sets of leaves, & look very healthy. Now I'm ready to transfer to larger cowpots, but they aren't available! Now what do I do? I haven't found a product similar to these in stores here in Maryland.

              Comments about Biodegradable Cowpots™:

              I love growing seedlings in these pots, as I know that (a)they can go in the ground in these pots and they'll deteriorate and (b)when they do deteriorate, they'll be adding nutrients to the soil. The only problem is, if you don't time it right or if you over-water the seedlings the cow pots have a tendency to get moldy and/or deteriorate before going into the ground. Timing really is everything!

                I am not a first time gardener but I have moved to a small apt. in a wet/ cold climate with short growing season. I am using the cow pots to start a few plants near a sunny window. ( I hope to buy a grow light system next year). I am happy with the cow pots, my seedlings are doing well.
