    I really like the idea of using the biodegradable planters but can’t seem to find any information on what they’re made of. As we all know, biodegradable does not equate to safe to eat.
    I didn’t really think much about this until I read an article about toxins that are  found in cardboard boxes, which I’ve also used as planters because they were easy to just drop straight in hole without worrying about. Anybody have any good info one way or the other?

    The problem with biodegradable planters is that they don’t really degrade in time enough to free up the roots. You essentially plant a plant that becomes root bound. Eventually the material will degrade. When I buy plants in those pots, I tear out the bottom, place in the hole then tear up the rest of the pot.
