Paper Potter Original – Biodegradable Plant Pot
Makes Paper Pots 4cm Wide x 6cm Deep
This paper potter was developed from a love of organic and eco-friendly gardening. The paper potter allows you to make small pots made from recycled and reused paper rather than using plastic pots. This is ideal for people who wish to cut down on their waste and become an eco-friendly gardener.
This size is suitable for seeds and small seedlings.
What I love about this product is that it encourages to grow your plant from a seed, which is so rewarding. There is nothing like growing a plant from a tiny seed that you have nurtured and cared for, let alone completely plastic free! The paper potter creates plant pots that are biodegradable and recyclable.
I have grown lemon trees and apple trees from seeds I got from fruit I had bought and eaten, these paper potters are perfect for that. Paper potters are also great to use with kids for a day out in the garden, making it a fun and interesting experience.
What Makes It Better:
- Plastic free
- Made from responsibly sourced FSC Oak
- Reusable, this will last your years and years
- Sustainable and eco-friendly
- Reduces use of plastic plant pots
- Made in the UK
- Natural finish, no chemicals
For something so natural and in tune with nature we sure have made it difficult to garden plastic free and organically. Plants that are so pure and natural shouldn’t be grown in plastic pots or sprayed with synthetic chemicals. In my eyes it’s just not right or natural in any way, so I have found products that make eco-friendly gardening so much easier.
We stock a range of products that are made from natural and sustainable materials that will help you to reduce, reuse and recycle rather than create more waste in the garden. Gardening should be guilt free and eco-friendly, these products are perfect for changing that and making your life so much easier.
The cardboard packaging is recyclable.
Once you have hardened off young plants, simply transplant the paper pot into the graden and the it will biodegrade in the soil.
