Local source for Horticultural cornmeal?

rwk_nova(7, Northern VA)January 6, 2009

I've read Horticultural cornmeal is effective at controlling a variety of funguses in the lawn and garden. Has anyone in VA used it with positive results? If so, did you find a local source? I called the nearest Southern States and they never heard of it.

Thanks is advance for any info!

Could you possibly be looking for corn gluten meal? I got it a Merrifield several years ago under the brand name Cockadoodle Doo. Their site has a where-to-buy locator. http://www.purebarnyard.com/cockadoodledoo/faq.asp

Also search Gardenweb for corn meal--I'm pretty sure I found some postings about using plain grocery corn meal. I tried it (again serveral years ago) on my inkberries, which get some black problem every winter. May have helped a little until it washed away.

The Rockingham Coop Mill near Hnbg has it for .09 cents a pound. But*** you must buy a ton of it!!

I tried to persuade them to rebag some, but...

Also local feed stores wouldn't help. They make more profit on the trade marked stuff selling for nearly $1.00 per pound.

I bought cornmeal at a local feed mill for .12 per pound. Not sure how well it will do.
