Perlite & Vermiculites

Ideal compost additive as it helps to retain air in the compost which is essential for healthy root developmentPerlites and vermiculites boost the aeration, drainage and moisture-levels of your compost and potting soil, helping to create the ideal environment for healthy root development in your seedlings and plants. 

Both perlites and vermiculites are natural minerals but work in slightly different ways to improve the quality of your compost. Perlite has a honeycomb structure to increase air and drainage in the soil, making it a great base for your seeds and cuttings. Vermiculites has a higher water retaining capacity and is ideal for seed sowing as well as acting as a rooting medium for cuttings. With its natural insulation, vermiculite can also be used for frost protection.
