ATTENTION !!! .....Bark Fines....A Possible Source

It annoyed me, and annoyed me very much to not be able to find Bark Fines that I need for making Al's Gritty, Quick-Draining Mix. I really didn't have many options other than the expensive, "Repti-Bark". But wait...read on.

I just happened to hit this site after searching for "Granulated Fir Bark". Check it out. It might be a good source for the bark fines that we all need.

Check out the different size bark particles, and other items that may find some use in mixing potting mediums.

I hope this may help. I only found this possible source, about 5 minutes ago, so I know nothing about this place.

Good luck.

Make sure the mulch items are bark, and not sapwood...

Other possible sources for pine/fir bark items are orchid growers... bonsai growers and suppliers... large pet and reptile shops and suppliers...

Good find, Frank... here's the link directly to their medium page...
