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.

How about Pine Straw over Ft Myers way
I have been thinking to try this rather than the usual bagged mulch
seems more public gardens etc. use the straw as opposed to that bagged mucl we usually or at least I usually
