Plantable Peat Containers
Plantable Peat Containers Offer a Biodegradable Alternative Compared to Plastic
Vans Pines' Plantable Peat Container is a biodegradable alternative to plastic containers. Overall, it allows for air root pruning to occur beyond the plug stage, which helps to further develop better root mass. Because they can be directly planted, little-to-no root maintenance is needed prior to planting with no removal or disposal of the pots.
Further, the Peat Gallon is a true gallon by volume, compared to the roughly 2/3 gallon by volume of the trade #1 plastic pot. That means a larger overall root volume that has not been impeded by a plastic wall, which is usually the cause of root whirl/circling.
