Vermiculite is a natural mineral that has been heated and expanded to create a lightweight, absorbent material. It is often used in gardening and planting as a soil amendment and seed starting medium.

Super Coarse Grade #4 4-8 mm. Ideal for starting seed, potted plants & garden.

Here are some tips on how to use vermiculite in your planting activities:

  • Soil amendment: Vermiculite can be added to soil to improve its texture and water-holding capacity. Mix one part vermiculite to four parts soil to create a well-draining, nutrient-rich soil mix.
  • Seed starting: Vermiculite is an excellent seed starting medium because it is sterile and holds moisture well. Mix vermiculite with water to create a slurry and use it to cover your seeds. This will help keep the seeds moist and improve germination rates.
  • Transplanting: When transplanting seedlings, mix vermiculite with soil to create a loose, well-draining planting mix. This will help prevent root damage and promote healthy growth.
  • Water retention: Vermiculite can help retain water in soil, which is particularly useful in dry climates or for plants that require consistent moisture. Mix vermiculite with soil to create a moisture-retentive planting mix.

Remember to always follow the manufacturer's instructions when using vermiculite, and be sure to wear gloves and a mask when handling it. With proper use, vermiculite can help improve the health and vitality of your plants.
