Japanese soil pallet

seasonal workPosted by Marcus Mon, January 07, 2013 20:36:34

Hi everyone,

spring is round the corner and I'm considering getting a pallet of soil ingredients delivered. Bulk buying this year has secured some very enticing potential discounts on Akadama, Kiryu, ezo grit

The window of opportunity is quite short though - Febuary meeting is the absolute latest for conformation as I need to get the split of soil types decided by then so if anyone wants 14liter sacks of soils please contact me sooner rather than later.

Prices will be in the region of:

1 single bag - £12

2 bags + £11 ea

5 bags + £10.50 ea

This is the delivered total price for all soils - Akadama, Kiryu etc in the large size bags so anyone interested can message me, email marcus@futurebaits.com or call 07855 300789 to place an order.

Akadama 4-6mm

Akadama 8-12mm

& Akadama shohin grade 2-3mm

6-8mm Kiryu and 2-3mm shohin grade

6-8mm Ezo grit and 2-3mm shohin grade

Perfect timing for those coming to the Peter Warren repotting workshops etc or planning any repotting this year.

cheers - it needs about 15 more sacks ordering to make the pallet delivery worthwhile

Marcus

I don't consider much of my material worth more than a fiver! Hehehe I'll be in touch directly Marcus, I don't think I will need quite as much as I thought I would. Just repotted some larches with a combination of akadama and general purpose from kaizen I already had. They were showing a little activity but certainly not quite as far ahead as Franks.

hi guys,

keep in touch with me directly as the delivery is certainly going ahead. I can definitely mix you up a batch dependant on species, but neil.....dont put a tree worth more than £5 in cat litter - it will stay waterlogged and get root rot. I have lost one tree in the last ten years and it came in CL and was rotted before the next repotting window. if you must use it add 5% to 95% proper ingredients. Would either of you like to come to my next Peter Warren workshops - they are based on soils, roots and repotting

Hi Marcus,Neil is correct - I will need soil but will also need some advice from you what best mix to buy. At the moment I am using two soil types from Kaisan - they do a pine mix and a deciduous mix.

I'm considering changing over from all the organic material I currently have alot of my plants in. Believe me, I have alot to do, but now I'm settled and have them all sited at work I can concentrate on it better.

So i'm looking at complete replacement of soil some of which I'd like to test with cat litter. I will probably be looking at getting some bags of soil from yourself but I reckon John Duncan might be wanting some too. When he's back from London, I will let him know you are getting a pallet and we'll advise asap on what we need.
