Looking for supplies in Northern Virginia

Post  68carguy on 2/16/2014, 6:39 pm

Hello;  Looking for coarse vermiculite, and 5 types of quality compost in the Northern Virginia area.  Getting prepared to build a 4x8 bed and need reliable sources for the items mentioned so I can make a quality soil mix.  Any help with locations for these things would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!!!!

I found Quoddy Blend at Wegmans.  Took it back to NC with me.  Black Kow products are available in NOVA, at  Merrifield Garden Center I think.  I visit NOVA a lot because I used to live in Fairfax, but now live in NE NC.

Find some old posts from Megan.  She used to be in NOVA and found some sources.

Looks as if the Lowes in this area carries the Black Kow, I will have to check out the Wegmans in my area about the Quoddy Blend. Thanks Kay.

Quoddy blend is the best bagged compost I buy.

Lowes and Southern States often carry the products.  And try Merrifield Garden Centers,

I highly recommend the black kow, black hen and mushroom compost.  I use all three and amend my homemade compost with them.

That is all good information, thanks! I have compost that I make from garden, kitchen, and leaves in the fall which is pretty good, just need to get 3 or 4 more quality composts to mix with mine.

Check out Craigs List(NVa) as well - saw rabbit and horse poo listed.  You might also put in a "Wanted - chicken, cow, etc" poo

Wegmans will have Quoddy Lobster Compost, but it doesn't arrive till sometime in march.


Southern States has Black Cow and a local "super" compost.


I ordered Course Vermiculate online from ULINE

Worm Castings and Mushroom Compost from amazon.com
