I got some Gran-i-grit and bark fines from John and I'm very pleased. I've never been able to find the grit in my area. I've always used Manna Pro poultry grit, but I prefer the color of the Gran-i-grit. The bark fines were prescreened and were the best I've seen. Almost no sapwood and uniform size. I definitely will buy from Heritage Orchards again!

I also thinking about ordering from John for a NYC delivery.
The $50 delivery charge is, though I'm sure justified, a bit high for me. Any NYC gardeners interested in splitting the delivery fee for one order delivered to a central location in Manhattan?

I was very fortunate to happen across this post...I normally make a modified gritty mix for container citrus using repti bark. I ordered 32 quarts of repti bark with delivery to Long Island earlier today, price $37.65. After reading this post, ordered about 59 quarts of screened bark from the website you mentioned (per conversion site I consulted, 1 cubic foot is 7.4 gallons, about 29.6 quarts -I hope that's right?) for $29.11. The bulk of the charge was for USPS shipping, but compared to what I was paying, this is great! All local Petcos are out of repti bark and say the manufacturer is short for some reason, which is why I mail ordered it today. Luckily I was able to cancel it...

nyc garden. I am debating ordering from here also, but i am in queens. I agree that the shipping seems understandable but a little expensive. I can get the granite and turface on long island but cant find bark anywhere. Also, his price on the perlite is fantastic. hmmm what to do?

Hi Queenskitchen,
I have found another source for the bark fines in the Bronx who has an Agway rep. connection. They can probably get perlite as well.

718-293-7750 ask for Jack.
