Yes, it’s fine Sabina if you only need 1kg, but very often farm supplies will sell 10 or 20 kg for not a lot more. I will try to find the one I bought, but it was a long time ago now :)

Thanks a lot Sue. I will order more than 1kg actually, i will put some outdoors to enrich the soil so new plants growing in spring can be richer in calcium.

That's what I do Sabina, buy enough to add to the soil if I plant seeds and some times sprinkle loads in the enclosure at the start of the season so the rain washes it into the soil. x   :)
