I am on a quest to fine vermiculite for my first Square Foot Garden. Does anyone know where I can find this in the Gray, Maine area?

Paris Farmers Union. Or O'Donal's in Gorham.

You might call Estabrooks in Yarmouth, it is a great nursery and I believe they carry many soil amendments. They list vermiculite on their web site (

Thanks for the replies!

I will check these places out this week.

I just wanted to followup with this thread. Paris Farmers Union in Auburn had the big bags on order and they came in this week. They were really nice and held some aside for me.

I was told they were 4 cu ft bags @ $19 ea. But they were actually 2 cu ft bags @ $19 ea. It didn't matter as I was just happy to find it.

Thanks again for your help.

Does anyone know where I can purchase this in the Bangor area?
