I now own my own greenhouse and would like to know where I can purchase perlite or vermiculite so as to produce my own soil mixture instead of buying the mixture in small bags.

Perlite is a granite-like volcanic rock that helps provide pore space, aerates and lightens soilless mixes. Vermiculite helps retain moisture and aerates the soilless mixes. Either of these products should be readily available at garden centers of large stores, or from nurseries in your area, or by mail from Garden-Ville of Austin, 8648 Old Bee Cave Rd., Austin, TX 78735 Phone (800) 320-0724
