We’ve been growing more and more of our plants in these great hairy pots over the last few years, and we love them, which is why we’ve just added them to our online shop.
The pots are ethically made in Sri Lanka using the main waste product from coconut farms (coir fibre) and organic latex sourced from local rubber trees.
As well as this being a very eco-friendly and sustainable process to make a plant pot, the hairy growing environment helps to grow really healthy, strong plants. You plant the pot directly into the ground where the pot simply rots away leaving nothing to throw away. And because you’re not taking the plant out of the pot, you’re less likely damage its root system when you plant it.
We believe using these pots can be a great way to not only positively use a waste product but also to go some way in reducing the number of plastic plant pots that end up in landfill.
Now you can buy these hairy lovelies online at the Eden Project shop. They’ll be delivered in a set of six planted with a selection of kitchen herbs and packaged in a specially designed box.
