We are certified by the state of Maine and MOFGA. We combine our own time-tested blend of micronutrients and biological agents, such as mycorrhizal beneficial fungi with a locally-made, compost-based, certified organic potting soil to ensure healthy seedlings.
We rely on proper nutrient balance to grow strong and pest-resistant seedlings. We use live beneficial insect releases in our greenhouse to keep the plants healthy and to deal with any pest issues that may arise.
Most of our plants are sold in organically-approved, biodegradable pots. You can PLANT THE POT RIGHT IN THE GROUND (cowpots.com, jiffy pot.com and dotpots.com)! This cuts down on transplanting shock to the plant, and also reduces the amount of plastic entering our landfills. Plus, Cow Pots add of a tiny bit of nutrients and organic matter to your soil!
Some of our plants are sold in recycled/reused and sanitized plastic pots and packs. FEEL FREE to return your good-condition plastic pots to us after you transplant your plants. We will wash and reuse them.
