Coir Pots: Yes it's another recyclable pot

Okay - this is something I saw in Toronto at Canada Blooms this spring (2008) but there it was again at LANTA. I realized I did not properly try out my single new pot this spring- I put something into it and it went outdoors and that is the last I saw of it. I only have a single pot again so I can't feed it to the worms. It looks much stiffer than the other pots - may be full of glue -  so I wouldn't want to risk feeding it to the worms anyway. They have been through enough this week  with the nematodes and all.  This pot will join the recyclable pot test - I needed more basil anyway so why not pot up the three different recyclable pots with growing mix and add some basil seed? Well, why not - but not today. The "potting mix" is outdoors and probably frozen.... It's a task for another day.

Hi Donna,
I've got a mess of these pots to try as well - tried some Napac pots for seedlings - found that they started to decompose on the light table - just a bit too soon for me.
