Granite chips for Al's gritty mix?

10 years ago

Greetings fellow growers,

Long time gardener, first time poster. Working on collecting my ingredients for 5-1-1 and 1-1-1. I just moved to FL and the wife and I bought our first house. We are finding ourselves doing alot of container gardening inside and out. We plan on using the 5-1-1 mix for annuals, citrus and vegetables and looking to use the 1-1-1 gritty mix for my succulent collection and various house plants (pothos, ferns, hoyas, etc)

I have all my ingredients for the 5-1-1 and have secured everything for the gritty mix minus the granite chips. I found a landscaping company locally that sells "granite fines" for .10/lb (scoop your own and go). Description says 3/8" minus which seems a bit big obviously but i suppose i need to screen regardless. Here is a pic, what do you guys think? The picture seems like more fines than 3/8" particles but who knows until I go check it out. Also, tons of feed stores locally in my area but no one carries Gran-i-grit..
