Maidenwell diatomite reopened 12 months ago

Postby Paulneill » June 2nd, 2017, 8:16 pm

Hi guys,

I was looking for some potting media and found this article, it says the maidenwell mine has reopened.

I love this stuff and couldn't believe how easy/ healthy my trees grew in it , I'm glad to see it's up and running again . Has anyone been able to find any of it to buy .

I'm living in Western Australia now so I'm looking to get some posted to my house if that's possible.

Link to the article is below.

I'm up in Brisbane and have found it at a pet supply store, try searching for Kleensorb.

cant vouch for the validity of the claim but someone on the BSWA facebook page has said that Amgrow Wettasoil granular soil wetter (26$ for 10 kg from the green shed) is diatomite...
havent checked it out yet though.

The Mt Sylvia diatomite is different to Maidenwell.

I emailed Maidenwell yesterday, and today received a response from a retailer http://www.dedirect.com.au who said Maidenwell passed on my enquiry. Their coarse size is 2-8mm. The company details (dedirect) are:
Holistic Farming Pty Ltd
6 Lindsay Street
Southside/Gympie QLD 4570
Tel: 07 5371 9603
Mobile: 0429884315
e-mail: info@holisticfarming.com.au

So, if you want to pay postage from Gympie, you can give them a try.
