Free Diatomite

Post by teejay »

Hi all. I was digging through my shed, trying to make room and found 1 and a half bags of Mt Sylvia diatomite in the corner. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it, I just haven’t been using it for the last few years so it has sat there the whole time. If anybody wants it and can pick it up from Healesville they’re welcome to take it for free.

Cheers
I really do wish they'd hurry up and grow.

Sorry Alan! There were a few dramas lately and I forgot to check in on this post. 🤦🏼‍♂️ Yes it’s still available if you’re keen?
