Coming from what would be the unused husks of coconuts, our coir fibre is a totally renewable, and constantly renewed,natural resource.
Each pot is hand crafted by village women from the poorest area of Southern Sri Lanka.
Fair trade in sustainable material which offsets Co2, think that really fits in with natures cycle !
Naturally growing coconut palms actually help reduce C02 emissions - try saying that about an oil well !
The coir pots, hand made by the friendly people of Sri Lanka, come to you on scheduled ships, and happily biodegrade when you plant them, and so a natural resource returns back to your soil.
Other benefits include healthy air pruned roots, no root binding, no need to twiddle the roots when you plant so no root shock - and they just look and feel so right !
They last about 12 months above ground, and about 6 weeks when planted. We say ‘about’ as they are natural products, with a lot of hand crafting about them.
The pots are rimmed or plain - whatever we have been packing that morning !
