Vermiculite In Portland !!!

Post  bdk52 on 4/10/2010, 12:19 pm

Greetings,

After a lot of searching I have discovered that McConkey has a warehouse in Wilsonville, OR, near Portland, OR.

They are located at 28055 SW Boberg Road, Wilsonville, 97070

Only open M-F, but they have in stock the COARSE grade vermiculite in 6 cubic foot bags for $ 38.61 a bag !!!!!!

Eureka !

This is my first year doing any sort of real gardening, and I stumbled upon the square foot gardening method while doing research, and I'm sold! I just thought I'd let you guys know that the Aloha Feed and Seed store off TV Highway has coarse vermiculite in 4 cubic foot bags for $25. They also have chicken, steer, and horse manures for sale, along with a ton of other great garden supplies (we found wheat seeds for our cat grass lawn for 50 cents a pound which is cheaper than what we'd found before).

Anyway, if you're interested, this is their address, it's at least closer than Wilsonville for most people:

18840 SW Alexander St
Beaverton, OR 97006

Pleasantly,
Ronald Bynoe

I hope you have put your find (LUCKY YOU!) in Ward's database.

Vermiculite has been a bit hard to find this year. We were able to get some earlier in the season, but our usual sources have dried up. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks to Ronald's suggestion, I was able to pick up a bag over the weekend. It was a 3.5cu ft bag, for $23.99. Not quite 4 cu ft, but way better than the $29.99 for 2cu ft (fine grade) that I had found at 7 Dee's. While not as "pretty" as 7 Dees, Aloha Feed and Seed is a REAL gardeners store. I wish I knew about it sooner.
