Does anyone know of any sources for Sunshine mix in the SF Bay Area?
what is sunshine mix?
It's a soilless mix made by Sungro (www.sungro.com).
For years, Sunshine mix was my favorite by far of all those available. About 4 years ago it vanished, and I was told by an owner of a local greenhouse that in most areas it is available to commercial growers only. He sells bags of their Pro Mix, but it's more than 3 times the price I had paid for it previously.
I sent numerous emails to the contact on Sungro's website but never got an answer.
Try calling them (numbers on website - www.sungro.com). I have been able to get in touch with them. Here, in CA, I can buy from a couple of horticultural distributors with no minimum order at good prices.
Here is a link that might be useful: Sungro Customer Service
Thanks! I will definitely give them a call.
