South Plains Vermiculite Sources

Post  SirTravers on 3/6/2010, 12:21 am

I've been looking for a source for horticultural grade vermiculite in
the 4 cubic foot bags and have gotten a source! This is the only one
I've found in the southeast New Mexico/West Texas area so far that has
the big bags.

Here's the info:

Bunk's Feed Barn www.bunksfeedbarn.com
3128 South Eunice Hwy
Hobbs, NM 88240
(575) 397-1228

(575) 397-1250


They can get the big 4 CuFt. bags for $25.99 each and place their orders on Monday and Friday. No minimum order required.

If anyone else finds a source anywhere in the south plains please list it here.

Our nursery here in Plainview, TX has it. Robert's Tree House is the name of the place. 806-293-2613. They make their own potting soil and use the 4 cu ft bags of coarse vermiculite in it. $24.99 if I'm not mistaken.

Vermiculite in Frisco & Plano

Post  timwardell on 3/19/2010, 9:57 pm

In Frisco, Texas:
Pardner's Garden & Feed Store
(972) 377-2165
Store Hours: M-F 8-6 & Saturday 8-Noon
4 cubic foot bags - nice people - this is where I bought mine (just 5 minutes from the house!)
I believe the bags were $25 each. Call to double check.

In Plano:
Well's Brothers Farm Store
I don't have a number. Saw this source from someone else in another topic. -- I don't recall the pricing but I want to say it was around $25 per 4 cubic foot bag.
