5 Inch Cow Pots are great for larger seedlings like squash, cucumbers, and melons. They provide the root space for seedlings to develop a bit further before transplanting out into the vegetable garden. They’re also great for tomato and pepper transplants to “pot on” from smaller sized pots as seedlings grow. Made from fully composted cow manure, they provide an environmentally sound alternative to plastic pots, and once they’re planted into the ground, they will biodegrade completely, providing nitrogen and a bit of organic matter to seedlings. This also means that transplant shock is not a worry because the roots of the seedlings can grow right through the permeable walls and into the soil.
