Home Depo

I purchase Turface at Fisher and son in Malvern.

Hilltop Distributors in Media carries poultry manure, green sand and other products

You could probably have things delivered from Penn State Seed Company

They sell Bio-Comp, a wonderful growing medium made from bark and peanut hulls. They sell Perlite, too. this is a list of some products.

Try Primex in Glenside. They have everything.

I never thought to check Penn State Seed, thanks Carol. This past summer I needed more perlite than the tiny bags the box stores (maybe) carry.... I ended up giving up on the project instead of paying for the overpriced little bags. Now I may have to re-activate the project for next year!

Serves me right for never actually going into the PState store. Never judge a book by it's cover!
