Bethel Organics, Inc. Wins Top Honors at 2009 All Things Organic™ Trade Show for 100% Biodegradable DOT Pots™

100 percent organic - no binders or fillers!

Shows I’ve been asleep at the ingredients aisle – thought all the other peat pot type pots were 100% organic.  These pots are part of a great little seed starter kit.  The “Cow Pots” are made of manure and fiber, though what the fiber is, hasn’t been found as of yet.  80% less peat is great, but 100% less peat would be even better (like coir).
Currently (as of June 2009) peat pots cost:Qty=50@$15.00
while Cow Pots are ringing in around $Qty=50@$42
and the Bethel Organic DOTpots ring in at Qty=50@$12.95 (via Johnny’s Select Seeds) All prices exclude shipping and handling.  Buying in bulk helps bring the prices down drastically.

    DOT Pots are 80% spruce fiber(the bi-product of thinning managed forests) and 20% peat. This ratio allows for roots to grow right though the pot, so there is no need to cut off the bottom before planting.
