I’ve read that impure vermiculite contains asbestos (i.e. from the plant in Libby, MT). Does this product contain traces of asbestos? Tha k you

Asked by: DrewP
Drew: I'd be just as concerned as you if I thought that was true. I've been using it for year in my garden and I've never found anything in any of the bags I bought other than the mulch I love. Keeps the soil cooler in the summer warmer in the winter and it looks good. If you put on a thick layer you'll have a lot less weeds and that's a win win any way you look at tit. Hope that helps, Hank

what is the best soil for bonsai
Asked by: mako
Recommended Bonsai soil mixtures Different tree-species demand different soil-mixtures, so make sure to check our tree-species Bonsai guide to find the optimum mixture for individual trees. We can however describe two main mixtures, one for deciduous trees and one for coniferous trees. Both mixtures consist of Akadama (the water retention component), Pumice (good for structure of the substrate) and Lava rock (to provide the mixture with aeration and drainage). Note that both mixtures can, and should, be adapted to your local circumstances. If you do not have time to check on your trees twice a day, add more Akadama (or even add organic potting compost) to your mix, to increase its water retention qualities. If you live in a wet climate, add more lava rock (or even grit) to enhance the draining qualities of your mixture. Deciduous tree Bonsai soil 50% Akadama 25% Pumice 25% Lava rock Coniferous / Pine Bonsai soil 33% Akadama 33% Pumice 33% Lava rock

8 Qt. Organic Vermiculite Soil Amendment is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 227.

I had previously purchased garden soil and had some left over, I purchased the vermiculite to add to the garden soil to make it into a soil suitable for containers. I am pleased with the results even though it has only been a week since the purchase, we had rain a couple of days after its use. The plant growth has exceeded my expectations in the time frame.

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

Working this into the soil is a big help in getting the water to stick around long enough for the plants to get a drink

The garden soils these days have a rather heavy consistency that needs amending for many plants that require good drainage. To amend the soil I add this product. It is excellent for that purpose. You vary the amount you add depending upon what you are planting.

Tried using garden soil and peat to condition and break up the clay in my garden beds, but still didn't drain. Adding the perlite and vermiculite gave dirt just enough texture to be friable and not "clumpy"!

We have a lot of clay in our soil, so helps it hold moisture better. I added peat moss, vermiculite and Perlite, also some compost on top. Can’t wait to plant my seeds.
