Where can I buy Diatomateous earth in or around Montreal?
I can buy small sacks at my AV club but I want it in large quantities.
Try a swimming pool supply place. They use it in pool filters, and you can buy 50lb bags of it...pure fossilized diatoms..quite sharp, and the slugs hate it!
Have you checked Jardin Jasmin?
I have tried to find it in Montreal(West Island)& the Laurentians.. at pool supply places...they've never heard of it...and I don't know how to say it in french...anyone have any luck finding it in this area?
"La Terre DiatomÃ©e" is the Google translation. English spelling is 'diatomaceous'. Hope this helps. :o)
I am looking for a small quantity
I have a communal garden plot
I hear it can help me with my Flea beetle problem
anyone know where I can find a small bag of it?
My poor Arugula and broccoli will thank you
My stomach too...
I got rid of the flea beetles by putting a little stick with yellow sticker on it. It is sold at Canadian Tires and garden centers. Hope this will help or you have already solved your problem.
I am interested to meet with gardeners in Montreal once per year to trade seeds and plants. If you are interested, we can set up a mailing list to see if it is possible to organize a meeting in 2012.
