Here at Elwell's we love to sell our produce at Farmers' Markets. We found that the best way to add additional income to our weekly sales was to sell live plants, or vegetable transplants. Our customers' favorites are always tomatoes and basil. We found the best way to plant, grow, and sell these transplants was in peat pots. Soon after we learned that peat, from the peat bogs, is not such a sustainable resource. We quickly started looking for a more sustainable solution. CowPots is it! 

CowPots makes these from "Manure Fibers" so they are also going to feed the plants. According to their website "these pots can withstand months in the greenhouse, but within 4 weeks of being planted in the ground they dissolve and continue to feed the plant."

We sell these six cell flats in packs of six.

Here is an excerpt from their website:

#3 Six Cell CowPot

A tray style CowPot with 6 connected 3 inch wide planting cells.

Uses: The #3 Six Cell is a self supporting style pot, our most compact seeding option for confined space. Scored for improved ease of separating cells at time of planting.
Great for use as a mixed garden seeding (lettuces, peppers, eggplants) or ‘salsa’ pack (tomato, hot pepper, cilantro) in one tray. Veggies with a quick turn around prior to transplanting like cucumbers, squash and pumpkins work very well in this style CowPot. Also well suited for marigolds and other spring flowering annuals.
Shelf life: Once planted, the #3 Six Cell stays intact for up to 2 months in a greenhouse setting.
If not planted and kept in a cool dry location, shelf life is indefinite (a dry location is critical).

Dimensions: 9 1/4” x 6” x 3” (2 1/8” bottom width/cell)
Fits Carrier Tray: Any 1020 Short Tray - Fits up to: 3 six cells/tray
