So it’s tree planting season and I had this thought ...
Plant Pot Peril
You buy a little apple tree
To plant in your back garden
But alas it comes in a round black pot
And recyclable it’s not
Plant pots piled high are a sight to see
Oh mother nature we beg your pardon
Plastic pollution is now our lot
In the fields and amongst the trees
Oh makers of black plastic pots
They really are quite deadly
We want our gardens to be eco plots
So please make them eco friendly!
Are you a keen gardener and have you thought about what happens to the mountain of plant pots left over from planting? Did you know that the vast majority are un-recyclable? My thought is that whenever you buy more plants, leave the pots behind at the supermarkets and garden centres where you bought them.
Some places do have collection points where you can leave them to be reused. There are some eco friendly alternatives too such as coir pots. Of course you can also buy bare root stock aswell.
What do you do with your pots? Who are your plant pot heroes? Comment below and tell us.
