Made up a new batch of "Kens Mix" today

Each batch is made up of
2 bags Akadama 2-6mm
2 Bags Pumice 1-7 mm
1 bag of 2mm+ Zeolite

Mix all together in a Cement mixer and then bag up into 14L plastic bags,
Each then weighs in at about 12kg so they are a nice size for us older folk to handle. If you only have a few trees or just want to try out inorganic mixes then these are an easy way to do so.
Note that when repotting trees in these mixes they are 80% reusable so workout to be really cost effective and environmental6y friendly :-)

Each bag is $40 and I can send 2 bags in a box via sendle at the usual price.

I just recieved a couple of bags from Ken and it was super fast and a very easy transaction for some good quality soil.
Thanks Ken much appreciated.

Hey Ken, do you send your "Ken's Mix" to any stockists down here in Adelaide, or is that a mail-order only one?
