Testimonials #theproofisinthepoo

"Porous plantable media, like these CowPots, enable one to better manage the moisture levels while rearing seedlings to transplant size than small plastic containers do.”
Dennis P.
[Regarding root penetration] This is one of the reasons why we are migrating all of our production towards this brand of bio pot! #cowpots

The Mint Monster is a great example of how happy plants are in CowPots! Many of our tomatoes and herbs are grown in them - pots made out of dehydrated cow manure! Plant the whole pot in the ground, and you've got instant fertilizer!

Thanks for the great product, you can see the difference in the field by using Cow-pots for all my transplants. We so often get behind on the TP schedule that the CowPots provide the extra buffer so the plants don't suffer for my floundering to stay on schedule!

I have bought them for my own production (small grower for landscape clients and myself) and I recommend them to everyone. They don't break apart on the bench which is such a huge deal with biodegradable pots. I use these exclusively and will continue to do so. So really, thanks for making such a great product!

Growing Trial Results


CowPots break down faster than other biodegradable seed starting pots.

Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station compared CowPots to rice hull, Jiffy and Fertil pots. After 3 months of growing, less than 20% of the CowPot was still intact while the other ‘biodegradable’ pots remained with more than 80% intact.
