In our plastic-taxed world today we need to find a way to shrink our man-made footprint! At Patuxent Nursery, this has been on our minds for several years. We have been working towards a biodegradable pot that can be planted in the ground and will break down in the soil leaving the soil in better condition.
Starting in the spring of 2019, we will be using an Ecco pot that is made from recycled non-printed paper that is coated with vegetable oil extract! These pots are meant to be planted by just pulling off the bottom of the pot and crumbling it into the hole you are planting. Simply put the plant and pot in the hole and pack the soil tight, eliminating cleanup time and mess!
