Fertilpots are biodegradable wood fiber pots composed primarily of Spruce (Picea Abies) fibers, and are manufactured without the use of glues or binders. Fertilpot is OMRI listed and USDA Bio preferred.
These are not peat pots!
Fertilpots are truly biodegradable and are intended to be planted directly in the ground or the next larger container. Unlike rice-hull pots, or starch-based polymers, and ‘biodegradable’ plastics Fertilpots do not require a composting situation to degrade.
Because water, air, and roots will penetrate the walls of the Fertilpot so easily, there is no need for drainage holes. The natural root structure that develops helps to ensure a successful transplant.
No other container; biodegradable, compostable or plastic, can allow a more natural development of the plants’ root structure.
Fertilpot is excellent for native plant material that can often be sensitive to transplant. Because the plant is never removed from the Fertilpot, there is never any transplant shock. Fertilpot has been proven very successful in the production of vegetables, grafted wine
grapes, forestry stock, as well as a range of annual and perennial crops.
Fertilpot is available in a wide range of sizes and configurations including strips, trays, and preloaded trays.
Tradeshows and Fertilpot
I couldn't have been more wrong, they run like a dream.
I was constantly getting transplant shock which is no longer a problem!
Fertilpot has really made a difference in our production.
