Perlite - those little white bits you find in all the best composts - allows you to achieve those fluffy potting compost mixes, full of air spaces and retained moisture, you've always dreamed of and will give your greenhouse seed sowing and growing activities a real leg-up.

Here's the science bit; perlite is natural volcanic rock which is heated to a high temperature to produce a lightweight micro-porous structure and this material proves ideal for holding air and moisture, reducing compaction and generally giving your plants the time of their lives!

Perlite By Anonymous 5 18th May 2011

I was pleased with the product, but seriously disappointed that the bag was so small! (Lessons for me to check the size better before ordering.) I paid £12 freight for that small bag, when I had expected to get a sack sized bag. That's probably my fault, but I won't be buying this product again from you. It would be good to have the choice of a larger size bag of Perlite.
