I read in an organic apple growers book that regular potter's kaolin clay does not work as well as the "surround wp" brand of kaolin. Any thoughts or experiences with this?

Howard talks about Kaolin clay on the program regularly. Here are two items from the Library:

Kaolin clay works well, but the SurroundWP product contains an additional element that seems to help the product stay on the leaves longer. SurroundWP costs more than a bag of kaolin clay, so you will need to weight the additonal benefit against the additonal cost.
