Here are our easy to follow growing suggestions:
Fill CowPots with potting soil mix and plant seeds (according to directions on the seed packet) or transplant seedling.
Water and fertilize as needed.
Give the pot time to harden between watering.
CowPots turn dark brown when wet,
and light brown when its time to water again!
When seedlings are ready for planting, place entire CowPot into soil, cover and water.
CowPots last for months above ground but once transplanted into garden soil, the pots begin to degrade and enhance your garden soil.
If you're wondering what CowPots are or how they work, we made a short video to explain.
From sowing your seeds to transplanting the whole pot in the ground, it's as easy as 1, 2, 3.
Designed to meet your growing needs, CowPots are formed to last up to 3 months in greenhouse growing conditions and will readily break down once planted entirely in the soil.
No. There is no need to tear or rip the CowPot when you're transplanting. The porous pot walls encourage root penetration. By not disturbing the roots, you are eliminating transplant shock.
