Vermiculite is an organic, asbestos-free soil amendment that promotes faster root growth and gives quick anchorage to young roots. Vermiculite helps retain air, plant food and moisture, releasing them as the plant requires them. Mixing vermiculite in flower and vegetable gardens or in potted plants will provide the necessary air to maintain vigorous plant growth while reducing watering frequency and allowing roots to spread . To care for plants and lawns - where soils are sandy, mix vermiculite into the soil, as this will allow the soil to hold water and air needed for growth. Vermiculite can even used alone or with soil for seed germination.
  • Use to improve moisture retention and aeration in potting mixes
  • Supports root structure to stimulate fast root growth
  • Organic soil conditioner registered with the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for earth-friendly gardening
  • Certified asbestos-free for safety
  • Invigorate your lawn or garden with a wide assortment of exclusive Vigoro products. Click here to learn more.

Q:What is the grade, or the particle size? Is this product listed as "coarse" or "fine"?
by|Apr 20, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for your question. The grade nomenclature is not standardized within the industry. We call the Vigoro grade “V3” or medium vermiculite. There is a coarser grade, which is rarely available this year, and there is a fine grade that is typically used for industrial applications.

            A:  I do t know the exact weight.  But it is light.  And the material is soft and designed to absorb water.  When dry it is quite light weight.

                We had some significant landscaping done last year & as a side effect of this work there were areas that needed the soil augmented. I mixed this vermiculite with composite to create an excellent mix when added to the existing soil. This area is on a hill & the vermiculite seems to help reduce the soil erosion we have experienced in the past.

                Great additive to our flower garden
                I mixed this organic vermiculite: one part vermiculite, nine parts compost to make up a very rich amendment for the existing soil in our back yard flower garden. One enormous benefit for us is that this mixture retains a huge amount of water & doesn't easily wash away. We are very happy with the results.

                  This is a great product, it makes all types of soil light & fluffy. Great for starts, and strong roots. Makes a huge difference with all veggie garden growth, but especially root veggies. All of my plants were started from seed and are thriving in their containers due to the addition of this vermiculite. The shipping from HD was fast, even with all the delays, and the packaging was in good condition.

                  It great for raised bed. I wish you had the coarse kind. And the price is reasonable.

                  I used this to make Mel's Mix. The product is as advertised. It looses one star because it's a little pricey. Larger amounts are usually cheaper, but hard to find. I did make a video showing in detail how to make a Square Foot Garden bed and how to make Mel's Mix. Here's a link to the video: https://youtu.be/WDioAFwGuwQ

                  This product is great and is performing just as the reviews stated. I am using in on my grass and it is keeping the moisture in the dirt so that my newly planted seeds can grow. Thank You
