As well as being far more beautiful than plastic pots, these are far kinder to the planet. We use these as house plant pots indoors and for planting in outdoors.
‘Coir is a natural fibre that is 100% biodegradable. It is extracted from the husk of the coconut, and is a fibrous material that is found between the hard-inner shell of the coconut and the outer coating of it.
Coir pots are 100% biodegradable and are an ideal method of growing plants without having them grow through any transplanting shock. In traditional methods of growing, you would have to relocate the plants as they grow bigger, and this could sometimes damage the root system, sending the plant into shock and slowing its growth. However, with Coir pots, there is no need to relocate the plant as the roots penetrate through the pot and grows through it. Therefore, all you need to do is simply relocate the coir pot itself into the ground where it will gradually disintegrate enriching the soil.’
The measurements refer to the top diameter of the pots.
