I started by felting my own pots for herbs, and then by request started making pots for other people. This progressed to more decorative and fun work which I include on this page.
Shoddy Pots are felted from my own organic wool. The pots range in sizes from propogation to planting out. At present I make two ranges, one for immediate replanting and another range that lasts for a longer period and is ideal for presents.. The advantage of a pot made from wool is that over time it starts to break down and releases nitrogen and other micronutrients. The plant and it's pot is planted directly into the soil without disturbing or harming the root system. The roots grow through the pot. This also means that the plant does not get root bound during growth before planting, which often results in the plant corkscrewing out of the ground once planted. A further advantage of Shoddy Pots is that wool retains water, up to 30% of it's volume, so reduces the need for watering.
