What is the purpose of a carrier?
The purpose of a carrier (e.g. sand, vermiculite, sawdust, or another kind of mixing agent) is to help you achieve even seed distribution, but it is not necessarily a requirement for scattering seed. Carriers can also help you to see visually the areas you have covered. We don’t add any filler to our seed mixes and instead try to educate about seed volumes. Customers can be assured with reduced volume in our packages that we are keeping our shipping and mailing costs as low as possible. You can add between 1/8 cup to 1/2 cup of carrier for every m2 of area you have to cover.
