Introducing... the Coir Pot!

Plant-able pots have been popping up all over the place these past few years, claiming to dissolve into the dirt after just one season.  It seems almost too good to be true!  In our experience, it has been to good to be true- so far...

  Our continuing quest to find the solution to plastic pots has led us to the "Coir" pot.  Take a close look, and you can see that this little guy is made up of coconut fibers and molded into an exact replica of its plastic counterpart:  

Pretty neat, right?  For the trial run we've planted up all sorts of veggies in the Coir pots.  This spring is the first time we've offered anything like this in a retail setting and we're so excited to share our "experiment" with all of you- we can't wait to see how the Coir pots perform!
