We all know that plants require soil aeration, nutrition and water to thrive. If you find that your garden soil is lacking in any or all of these arenas, there’s something that you can add to improve the soil structure – vermiculite.

Adding vermiculite -5dm3 into your gardening soil increases water and nutrient retention and aerates the soil, resulting in healthier, more robust plants.

Benefits for using Vermiculite:

  • Add vermiculite to soil for conditioning and lightening either alone or in conjunction with peat or compost. This will accelerate the growth and promote anchorage for tender young root systems.
  • You can use vermiculite directly for root cuttings, just water thoroughly and insert the cutting up to the node.
  • Use vermiculite alone or mixed with soil or peat for seed germination, it will allow the seeds to germinate more rapidly.
  • Vermiculite mixed half and half with soil, peat or compost eliminates packed down soil in flowering pots and houseplant containers allowing excellent aeration, reducing watering frequency and allowing root spread.
  • Place bulbs or root crops in a container and pour the vermiculite around them. The sponge like quality of the vermiculite will absorb any excess moisture and prevent rot or mildew while protecting them from temperature fluxes.
  • Vermiculite is non toxic,  odorless and sterile.
  • It will not mold or rot.
