Appears to be a good product. Haven't used them yet as it's still a bit early to start seedlings. They were a gift.

Cowpots are a great way to start seeds

By A Kentucky Gardener

from Louisville, KY

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Biodegradable
  • Easy to use
  • Gives you a "jump" on the growing season
  • Inexpensive
  • Provides extra nutrition for the plant

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Starting seeds

    Comments about : 2-3/4" Square Cowpots 6-Packs, Set of 4:

    I like to start my garden from seed a little before in-ground planting season begins. There are several advantages, among them knowing exactly what you're growing and the conditions under which it was raised. Though I'm not a certified organic gardener, I like to grow things naturally without potentially harmful chemicals added into the process. So, cowpots are a perfect choice for me! I start my seeds in my own seed-starting mixture in the cowpots in a warm, sunny window or in my greenhouse so that they will have a good solid start by the time I put them in my garden beds. Since the cowpot is planted right along with the plant, there is minimal transplant shock to the tender, young plants as their root systems go undisturbed. Plus, being made from cow manure, the cowpots provide bit of extra nutrition to the plants. Eventually the roots grow right through them. While there are a notable few plants that typically don't do well with transplanting, most of them thrive, and you can always be sure of exactly what you're growing. Plus, especially for those who live in areas where the growing season is not very long, it gives you a jump on the season so your plants have more time to grow to maturity. A healthy start makes for a healthy harvest!

        I grow a lot of tomatoes and pepper and the larger size of these starters is great. My plants will get a better start and less risk of transplant shock.

        Perfect size for many types of seeds. I received a shipment where two of the sets were crushed, and individual cowpots were torn, making them useless. better to get packaged differently, and protected better in shipment.

          Comments about : 2-3/4" Square Cowpots 6-Packs, Set of 4:

          I have used Cowpots for several years when transplanting individual plants from seed-starting flats. They break down completely when planted in the garden with no need to clean/recycle plastic pots.

          • Perfect Size For Seedling

          Cons

          Best Uses

          • Good For Tomato Seeds

          Comments about : 2-3/4" Square Cowpots 6-Packs, Set of 4:

          I use these every year to start my tomato seeds indoors to get a good start before planting outside. I place seed starting soil in the pots and place the pots in a water tray and water from the bottom. I place one seed in each pot and in about a week I have almost 100% germination. If one seed does't make it, one can then place another seed in its place and not disturb any of the other seedlings. I order these every year.
