    What about the flame retardants dupre add to the vermiculite so that it conforms to fire retardant reg LPS 1207?

    @rickvanman – did you see my cut and paste? 100.00 Kgs was the weight 😀 typo on website I think 😀

  4. rickvanman says:

    @TheOriginalJoeBloggs LOL! It’s 100 litres not Kg’s.
    100 Kg’s would require a bag the size of windsor castle :o)

  7. rickvanman says:

    @TheOriginalJoeBloggs Nice catch!
    100 kg? are you sure it’s the right stuff? – Vermiculite weighs the same as polystyrene. A bag bigger than a person could be lifted with your little finger.

    Very nice garden boxes & video! I started my first SFG last year and loved it. I’m going to build 3 additional 4×4 beds this year – 1 each for my kids, and 1 for my husband. I also have videos of my last years garden here on YouTube. I cannot narrate well like you, so my garden is just set to music, but it does explain the basics & the timeline. You can watch my videos by searching for ‘rebeccas square foot garden’. Thanks for sharing SFG w/everyone!! It’s awesome!!

    Exactly, i was going to Manchester Airport, but as soon as i stepped out of the front door, god it was cold!

  14. rickvanman says:

    Tell me about it! I’m itching to get on with it, but can’t do anything with this cold weather!

  15. 55022RSG says:

    ahh fair enough then. also its just too cold to anything.

  16. rickvanman says:

    I think its more to do with water retention. If you want non/low-aciddic soil, just add lime

  17. 55022RSG says:

    is the vermiculite, used to cancel out the acidity in soil, =D

    I found it. Check my fav. vids. Cheap easy way to make your own light. I think you will enjoy how simple and cheap lighting can be, without a lot of electricty. I believe gardening is like math, we go for the least possiable in supplies and the most simple.
