Product Bites: 5" & 6" biodegradable Bamboo Pots•
Posted on 8 April 2020
What are Bamboo Pots :
Bamboo Pots are ordinary pots made out of an extraordinary material. They are made from sustainable bamboo fibre, rice starch and resin made from naturally occurring organic compounds. This material is free from petroleum-based plastics and BPA. They last 3 to 5 years and are biodegradable. So, after use you can dispose of them on their 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. They are part of a rangle including 3", 4", 8" pots and saucers as well as Plant markers and a Plant Scoop.
What crop are they for:
The 5" and 6" can be used wherever you would have previously used a plastic pot. So, they are suitable potting on or starting off many veg plants. They are also perfect for small house plants. And ideal for herbs such as mint so you can have it available there on the kitchen window cill ready for use in cooking.
Where can I use them:
They are designed for both indoor and outdoor use. These soft colours and the finish on pots will look just as good with herbs on a kitchen windowsill as in the greenhouse.
What's so special about it?
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. It’s estimated that 500 million plastic plant pots are sold every year. The majority are sent to 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.
