is this a seasonal item? When does it stop being carried by stores, at least in the Portland oregon area?

Asked by Annie October 8, 2020

Answer

Annie: That could depend on where you live and would be best answered by an associate in the Garden Department at your local Home Depot. If they don't have it in the store you should always be able to order it on line and pick it up at the store. My local Home Depot always seems to have it and if you do a lot of container gardening it's important. 2 Ag teachers taught me to put an inch or two at the bottom of each container to absorb moisture and attract the roots for more stable plants. When you do use it, please remember to cover the drain holes in your pots with a single coffee filter underneath to keep in the pot. I hope that helps, Hank

This will make an excellent soil amendment for any plant, or tree. It works best if you thoroughly blend this into your soil and I would recommend using equal amounts of perlite and peat moss to go with the vermiculite. Your plants will thank you.

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.

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
