We now use biodegradable pots for our seedlings (along with some re-used plastic pots.) Plant these seedlings, pots and all, right into the ground. Biodegradable pots simplify transplanting and eliminate root shock.
Your plants will thank you!
HOW TO TRANSPLANT Biodegradable Pots
Before transplanting, keep a close eye on them as these pots dry out faster than plastic pots; walls of the pot should not dry out. Remember to wet the pot & seedling thoroughly before you transplant. Make sure the rim of the pot doesn’t show after transplanting. Bury the whole pot, or tear off the protruding edges of the rim before planting.
Note: the little square peat pots ($1 items) dry out extra fast!
Our oceans and landfills are filling up with plastic.
Let’s change that with reusable or compostable alternatives!
