LIFE AFTER A PLASTIC POT

GIVE ANOTHER LIFE TO YOUR NURSERY POTS

Did you know that some councils in the UK don’t accept plastic pots as recyclable materials? We are on a mission to prevent discarded plastic pots from making their way to landfill. In 2018 landfills received 27 million tons of plastic worldwide. If plastic ends up in landfill it can take 10-100 years to break down. We want to do whatever we can to be part of the solution rather than the problem. That’s why we need your help to bring life into your old plastic pots instead of throwing them away.

Let’s talk about the ways you can reuse your plastic pots.

KEEP THEM FOR PROPAGATION!


Who doesn’t love more plants? Keeping a few nursery pots in your shed or garage can come in handy especially if you’re a keen indoor gardener. The spare pots you have lying about might just be the perfect size for a propagation project or a plant that needs repotting into a larger plastic pot. It’s also good practise to have a few nursery pots available for any time you feel like having a plant care day. Read our Propagating Guide.

TRANSFORM YOUR NURSERY POTS INTO DECORATIVE POTS!


It’s true, nursery pots are fairly boring and uninteresting to look at but if you’ve got some time to spare why not have arts and crafts days to let out your creative side. You can use any material that fits in with your own personal style. Decorate those plastic pots with rope, paint or even shells to use as a decorative pot inside or outside. If you’re worried about the drainage holes you can use a plate or saucer underneath the pot to catch any excess water.

RETURN THEM TO YOUR LOCAL GARDEN CENTRE


We’re not the only ones on a mission to make the world a greener place. Many local garden centres around the UK are now accepting unwanted plastic pots so they can be reused with the promise they will not end up in landfill. If you don’t live near a garden centre you can head over to recyclenow.com and use their locator tool to find out where your unwanted nursery pots will be accepted.
