Pine Straw in Brevard/Spacecoast/central FL

I'm looking for pine straw to use as mulch and nobody has it. Does anyone know a place in the Brevard area that sells pine straw bales?

I don't know if i can help you...but no one else is coming to the plate....so....
I'm seeing more independent nurseries that carry pine straw. None of the box stores. I know a couple of places that carry it now. I'd keep calling and keep asking for it.

I agree, call around or find someone with pine trees and rake them up for free. :)

The feed store in Sanford has it on occasion and the mulch place (Bolling Wood) always has it. That might give you some ideas for your area.

$5.50 sounds pricey to me. I'm paying about f 4 bucks for mine.

Whenever one of my kids gets in trouble I send them out to rake a bunch up (assuming pine straw and pine needles are the same thing?) :)

My mother in law lives in Rockledge. She has a big beautiful yard with lots of mature pine trees. She has lots of clean pine needles. She usually has barrels and barrels of it. She could probably use a few bucks, so i'm sure she'd part with all you want for $10. Thanks, Jon

I have seen it at various Lowes and HD but not all of them. If you see a trailer parked by the garden center it usually is full of pine straw.

C&H feed on Aurora in Melboune carries pine straw

Here is a link that might be useful: c&J Feed
