I was at Home Depot yesterday and looked for the Vermitculite and an employee told me they stopped carrying it a few years ago. Can't believe that. Will Jiffy mix serve the same purpose as Vermitculite? Couldn't find that either but it was there a few weeks ago when I bought my first bag of potting mix. Will call around today to some other nurseries nearby. Not spending my entire day running from place to place looking for it. I bought some creeping phlox yesterday and want to get them planted and also want to put down Critter Ridder see if I can't stop the squirrells from digging in my flowerbeds. Supposed to be a repeat of yesterday's 68 degrees so want to make good use of it.
Finally found the vermitculite and also Pro-mix BX in bales. Since I just bought two bags of MG, I will wait until November to buy the Pro-mix BX.. certainly am not that pleased with MG. Also invested in Bobbex spray for small animals like rabbitts, squirrells and chipmunks..A lady who is a gardening coach and has her own business was here for a consultaion back in Nov. and she highly recommended Bobbex for the deer. I sprinkled Citter ridder on Sunday and it rained hard on Monday, so I see some fresh digging holes so Bobbex to the rescue!
Okay, how much of this vermitculite do I sprinkled over my seeds when I plant them? For you that use it, do you use it on everything that you WS?
