Anyone here that can help me find...

a more reasonable place to order my potting mix. I use pro-mix bx in the 3.8 cu bales and it runs me about $21.00 a bale. Also would there be something a little cheaper to mix in with my potted up trees and such.

I want to use the pro-mix exclusively on my annuals, perennials, etc. Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Dion

Several nurseries I know use pro mix and peat 50-50. I mix 50-50 then add about 1/3 compost.

I found my local supplier of Pro-Mix and buy it from him by the pallet or half pallet. Much cheaper. Go onto Pro-Mixes website and look for local dealers in your area. Mine happens to be Wilbur-Ellis. They carry full lines of other products like Osmocote which is cheaper also.
