I buy my bark from orchid supply shops. It is usually fir bark not pine. It is available in different sizes but I am not sure about "fines".Looking for Pine Bark 'fines'. I've tried all the local pet shops and can't find shredded or
fine bark anywhere. Anyone know of a source for this excellent medium for Bonsai?
Some products marketed as soil conditioners have gypsum or other additives. I'm not sure whether these are safe to use, but just throw that out there.rockm -
This Nature's Pride Soil Conditioner. Is it totally Pine Bark mulch?
I found another product which is a soil conditioner called Bumper Crop Soil conditioner. It's not all
pine bark, but is used to build up bedding and also lighten clay based soil.
Any thoughts on this stuff?
The reason I'm asking is that the Nature's Pride is just not available at this time and some of the others I've found are.
Marc has a point and it could be argued here that for what we do...their are testimonials as well for using composted pine, and fir. Out of curiosity...whats the testimonials on GW for, bonsai or growing tomatoes?Thanks but I think I'll go with Tapla's advice on this. He's got all kinds of testimonials on Garden Web that have
used his recipes and swear by them. You can't argue with success.
