Plant pots

Is it biodegradeable for short term use, or hard wearing for permanent planting.?

 If its going to be green will it be made out  of recyclable materials, or have minimum amounts of non renewables like petrochemicals.? You can make pots out of coir, totally renewable, but the fuel involved to transport the coir is considerable.

I made my Xmas cake and a spare with the leftover stuff. OH has already tested the spare  and I've had to hide the proper one.

If I didn't have to work, and had loads of money, I would be diving and cuddling my way around Indonesia, Rajah  ampat, moving into Papua New guinea, and then working the islands up the Pacific.

I want to dive with humpbacks in Tonga, great whites off the bottom of Australia, and see pygmy sea horses in Indonesia.

I just need to win the lottery first.
