I'm looking for a local source of crushed lava rock, 1/8"-1/4" anywhere near Chicago. Anyone with a good source?

I dont know but If anyone else does I'd sure like to know myself. I've bought some on Bonsaimonk.com once but couldn't find a local seller. Looks like you found this site too hugh Fore?? :D See you tonight at the MWBS meeting (If your attending). Someone there might know.

Drystall is I think very much like pumice and can be found at many Agway etc. stores

Check your PM, I sent you the email address of the guy I bought a couple pallets from this winter. He's in the quad cities area.

Since Brian gave me the source privately, and I'm new here and don't know all the rules, so I'll let him pm you roelex14. Maybe we can order together and get bulk pricing? Just a thought.

Dry Stall is pumice. I got mine at Southern States in my area. I am sure you can get it at any equine supply place. it comes in a 50 lb bag. My trees love it in their mix
