What is/are :

It is a seed tray made out of sustainable bamboo fibre, rice starch and resin made from naturally occurring organic compounds. This material is free from petroleum-based plastics and BPA. Bamboos are some of the fastest-growing plants in the world. Some species can grow 91cm in a 24-hour period, a rate of almost 4 cm an hour. This makes the core material truly sustainable. They can be used year after year so they are a great alternative to single use trays.

What crop are they for:

Sow anything you would have sown in a plastic seed tray into a Bamboo Seed Tray.

These soft colours and the finish on pots will look just as good with herbs on a kitchen windowsill as in the greenhouse. They come without holes for indoor use where you don't want them to drip. However it is easy to add holes for drainage. Simply punch out where marked with a screwdriver or tip of a trowel.

What's so special about it?

Whilst you can find some biodegradable pots for sale, at the time of writing this is the only biodegradable seed tray on the market. It’s estimated that 500 million plastic plant pots are sold every year. The majority end up in landfill or are incinerated. Very little is recycled and there are few facilities to do so. A large amount of fossil fuel is used in the production of plastic pots, and they take around 500 years to decompose. The difference with the Bamboo Seed Tray is that you can dispose of them on your home compost heap. Composting may take 6-12 months. Breaking the products into small pieces before adding them to your compost heap will help speed up this process.
