Pack of 12 round pots mea­sur­ing 31⁄2x31⁄2in (9x9cm) made from black biode­grade­able ma­te­rial with sta­pled sides and flap base. Drainage gaps in base. Plant with­out re­mov­ing pot when roots grow through the sides.

Per­for­mance

Light and a bit squidgy, but strong enough to han­dle even when wet. Fid­dly to pull sin­gle pots apart from stack. Easy to fill with com­post, to sow or trans­plant into. It has a broader base than fi­bre pots. All 12 just squeeze onto a stan­dard-sized seed tray. Sta­ples may linger in the soil af­ter pot has rot­ted.

Value

Quite ex­pen­sive – big­ger, value packs are avail­able. Per­fect for sow­ing big seeds or grow­ing on seedlings be­fore plant­ing out. No long-term grow­ing or or­na­men­tal value.
