    Great article, i am using the same pots pictured in your article – i have got mine from Think they are great, and am very happy to be making my garden and surrounding environment more natural, and able to be cutting down on use of plastics.

    It only makes sense to be using natural and biodegradable stuff while one can, in your garden! So i buy biodegradable at every chance i can now.
