Biodegradable Cowpots™ - $7.95 to $10.95


Biodegradable, Eco-Friendly Cowpots for Transplants
Plants thrive in these award-winning biodegradable transplant pots. CowpotsT are the patent-pending invention of Matt and Ben Freund, two Connecticut dairy farmers who were looking for an environmentally responsible way to dispose of cow manure. The manure is dried, completely composted, mixed with natural fibers, and pressed into pots. Gardeners love Cowpots because they are odorless and free of weed seeds. Plants love Cowpots too, because transplant shock is greatly reduced. Best of all, Cowpots are 100% biodegradable. They last for months in the greenhouse or windowsill, but will dissolve within weeks after planting in the garden, providing essential organic nutrients. We are very excited about Cowpots, and recommend them to any gardener who wants to increase plant health and reduce waste. Kit includes:
Biodegradable Cowpots
  • Completely biodegradable pots transplant directly into garden
  • Add nutrients to the soil as they degrade
  • Roots grow through and take natural fertilizer with them
  • Eliminates transplant shock

Mulches

Red Tomato Mulch - $11.95


Tomato Yield Booster Will Increase Your Tomato Harvest 20%!
The product that started the "red revolution," this remarkable red mulch helps tomato plants grow faster and produce more abundant crops. Now it's better than ever, with micro-perforations that allow water, air and nutrients to reach the soil surface. Convenient, pre-cut 3' squares are easier to work with. Developed jointly by the USDA and Clemson University, and proven effective in tests by a leading consumer magazine, this specially engineered red mulch is an exciting breakthrough for anyone who grows tomatoes. The red plastic actually reflects far-red light wavelengths upward into your tomato plants. This triggers the release of a natural plant protein that stimulates more rapid growth and development. Your plants will mature faster, look bushier, and give you a more flavorful, more abundant harvest than ever before.
