LITITZ, PA, April 26, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Millions of gardeners are planning their flower gardens this spring and part of their outdoor decor plan will most certainly include a hanging basket for their porch or free-standing hanging basket stands. In the past, the selection for lining their baskets would have been a coco liner. That selection of hanging basket liners has now been widened with the launch of the new EcoLiner.
Many gardeners enjoy the look of their coco lined hanging baskets but discover throughout the season that coco liners do not retain water well and therefore their plants dry out easily. Coco liners also fade with time and get messier as the season progresses.
Coco liners in hanging baskets create several problems for gardeners:
- The pesticides and latex applied to the coconut liner cause the material to dry out very quickly
- Coco liners have poor moisture retention properties
- Daily watering is necessary in hot, dry areas
- The coco liner's material weathers rapidly and appears 'blown out' before the gardening season is over
- Insects find coco liners to be inviting and make residence there
As a result of the dissatisfaction with coco liners, the EcoLiner was developed and launched by CobraCo, a well-known brand for innovative outdoor living decor. The EcoLiner is a paper mache liner, fabricated from recycled corrugate and is made in the USA. It is a biodegradable product that is environmentally friendly.
The performance of the EcoLiner is far superior to other plant liners. Research results showed that the EcoLiner retained 30% more water than coco liners after 3 days and had 38% less run off when watered.
The benefits of the EcoLiner are many:
- Paper mache liner; made from biodegradable materials
- Clean, smooth surface
- Twice the moisture retaining ability as coco liners
- Reduced effort required to maintain plants - less watering for gardeners
- Made of biodegradable materials; without the chemicals used in coco liner production
- Resists fading caused by sunlight due to natural colorfast pigment dye
- Available in a beautiful "Stone" color in 12", 14" and 16" sizes
- Made in the USA
The EcoLiner flower basket and pot liners give gardeners many new and significant advantages for their flower gardening efforts. Gardeners will favor the new and sophisticated look for their hanging basket and will appreciate that it is an environmentally sound product made in the USA.
