After 30 years in the landscape and garden supply business, we have discovered exactly what it takes to make a soil produce most effectively.  One important ingredient that is often overlooked is pumice, which is very beneficial for optimum plant growth.  3/8”-1/16” Pumice rock, a by-product of the volcanic process, is a sterile, white, tiny stone which provides essential aeration and drainage due to the indentations on the surface of the pumice rocks.  It is exceptionally beneficial for storing, retaining, and transferring water to the roots of your most prized vegetables or flowers.
