Where Can I Buy Perlite In The San Jose Area??

I'm looking to buy Perlite in 4 cubic foot bags and on Ebay, Amazon, etc. those vendors who sell it at about $12.00 per bag then want another $30.00+ in shipping charges. Is anyone aware of a local source in the San Jose area?

thanks,

Ray

Not sure if they have 4 cubic foot bags, but Lowes and Home Depot in Massachusetts does sell Perlite. I did the same thing and looked online but with shipping costs it was much, much less expensive to buy it locally. Good luck.

Hi Ray-

I've seen perlite in 3.5cu ft bags at Home Depot for approx $23 in Colma, CA. Orchard Supply had 3.5cu ft bags for approx $16 in South SF. You should be able to find something in SJ.

Home this helps.

Thanks Pat,

I hadn't even thought of trying Orchard Supply. I have one 10 minutes from home, so am on my way shortly....
