Growing Trial Results


CowPots break down faster than other bio 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.

Testimonials #theproofisinthepoo

Time and again we have had great success using your product. People recognize us because of our use of CowPots. Not only will I never use plastic pots again, I won’t use other brands of ‘biodegradable’ pots again. Some other companies offer narrower and deeper pots but their product is inferior. CowPots are simply the best there is.

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!
