I live above Atlanta, GA, Canton. I can not find vermiculite. Is there a decent mix I can go to Lowes or Home depot to pick up? How much for a 4' x4' x 7" deep?

thanks

Don't forget to check the insulation department for vermiculite...also our Vermiculite database may be of some help!!

Good luck finding your vermiculite!

If i remember correctly my dad was a brick mason and we poured vermiculite in block cavities for insulation and moisture absorption...

Another great spot would be places that sell gas-log fireplaces. I just found out today that the white crumbly stuff under the fake logs.....that glows like burning embers......is vermiculite.

Worth asking about. And, welcome aboard!!

Contact your local nurseries and feed and seed stores. If they don't have it in stock they can definitely order it in for you.

+1 on the database linked above. Try Pike's Nursery. There are some around you in Woodstock and Marietta if you are able to drive a little ways.

Let us know if you need additional help.

Athens GA at Cofer's. They carry medium grade, which I am using. Works fine but I will have to replace sooner, in a few years. Cofer's is ordering some coarse grade from South America. According to them, there is none to be had in our area. Sad
