Description

Sinclair Vermiculite Medium 100lt

Sinclair 100lt medium vermiculite laminar structure provides excellent cation exchange properties, helping compost hold on to soluble nutrients. Also ideal as a top dressing for seed sowing. Fine grade aids water management of peat-based growing media. Coarse grade provides higher aeration levels.

What is vermiculite

Vermiculite, a hydrous phyllosilicate mineral, undergoes significant expansion when heated. Exfoliation occurs when the mineral is heated sufficiently, and commercial furnaces can routinely produce this effect. Vermiculite forms by the weathering or hydrothermal alteration of biotite or phlogopite.

How to use Vermiculite.

Use 1/3 to 1/2 vermiculite in your potting soil for containers or when building your raised beds, or improve your garden soil by adding it in the spring with your other soil amendments and compost. For new lawns, spread a 1/4 inch layer evenly around the planted area just after you seed it, then irrigate well.

  1. Pour vermiculite from the bag into soil.
  2. Spread the vermiculite evenly.
  3. Seed, or transfer plants into your container.
  4. Cover small seeds.
  5. Water your container.
  6. Pour out excess water.
  7. Improve an existing compost.
