lava.JPG blacklava.JPG
this is the small 1/4" "clean" Red(SOLD OUT) and BLACK Lava - the small Black Lava is all we have in stock at this time 9/27/16 
There is still some 3/8" clean Red and Black Lava  left in small quantities as of 9/27/16
email for availibility and prices 
It is a great product and more info on it will be coming? I have sold it on and off for years but always considered it "too expensive" for my Soil Mix?   In this area,  many use Haydite,  as it is produced locally and reasonably priced.  I have started to use the Lava  here and will have a better "review" of it after an entire year of seeing how it performs in all seasons?(The Lava is a Great Product(9/2016)
The info I saw while "researching" Lava was VERY vague and there were ALWAYS two totally conflicting comments on it's benefits or it's weaknesses?...
 So far, in the Lava -  I see - It is porous! It does absorb water! It does sink in water! It is coarse and sharp.(I see conflicting internet info on these past opinions) Soil seems to  "firm" up very nicely after the first watering! Bareroot plants potted into my Lava Soil Mix seem to "hold on" to the Lavas very well and seemingly  better than my Haydite Soil Mix? More to come on it's values and weakness?...

MAJOR DRAWBACK!!- SHIPPING!!!...
the bags of RED Lava are 1 cu ft. - this is like a big bag of dog food and also smaller sizes.
The Black Lava is bagged in 7lb Bags or other sizes are available in limited quantity
IT IS VERY  expensive TO GET and to SHIP AGAIN and shipping adds so much to the actual cost of the product!! I suggest picking it up here-(**someone probably should NOT load 40 bags in a mini van?-40 bags is about 2000lbs- 1 ton!)!! Each bag weighs about 45 lbs dry. If it is wet, it seems it could weigh double? (It does hold alot of water)
I also cannot take "orders" to "deliver" to Shows at this time!  
So for now, I am still looking into economical ways to get this product moved around? But it is here! So come and get it...

It can be shipped abd the best value seems to be USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes...

email if you have questions? 

BLACK LAVA HAS ARRIVED! 3/26/14!! 
More info to come on this exciting product!...
