What size are the granules? I've tried 3 different sizes in the past. the half inch or so seemed to large to mix with the soil, the powder was awful to work with clouding on everything, but I had some 3 millimeter or so granules and something similar would be great - could not see this in the description, but won't buy the powder again. Thanks.

Our Biochar granules comes in all different sizes, and that is actually better for the soil. Different sized particles play different roles in the soil. However, we will soon have all our Biochar sieved and graded by size --- from a half-inch and down, a half-inch to 1.5 inches, and 1.5 inches and over. I hope to have these products online within 30 days. If you want Biochar in coarser pieces, we can mix it for you.

Do you use this product by itself or it has to be mixed with regular gardening soil?

Asked by: GreenGiant
Biochar should be mixed into the soil at 1 to 2 percent. Give it a light dusting on the soil, and then turn it in. A 1-lb bag will augment a 10'x10' garden -- nicely. For potted plants, I would put about a half teaspoon per plant. Gently water it into the pot without letting it flow underneath. Collect water from underneath the pot somehow, because you don't want to lose Biochar that way.
