White Pine Shavings, Garden Helper

By kylaluaz
November 4, 2014

I started using white pine shavings when I badly needed some carbon (dry browns) for a new compost mixture and didn't know where to get straw or dried leaves. I bought a bale of white pine shavings instead because they were cheap, not too heavy for me to carry, and easy to work with. I now like having them on hand for several uses, and I keep finding more.

l wonder if l could use these to repot orchids that are somewhat terrestrial. l have been using cedar, assuming it would repel insects, but now wonder if that is why the cymbidiums have not been blooming well.
