I've heard a lot of good things about Hollytone. Does anyone know if you can purchase it in BC or is it sold primarily in the US? I tried our local nursery but they don't carry this product. Thanks

If you are on the coastal side of the mountains you may not have any use for it. As with other fertilizers, find out what your soil may need - if anything - and use a product that meets that need.

In addition to the above, Holly-tone is just one brand of organic fertilizer formulated for acid loving or braodleafed evergreen plants - it is not any better or worse than any other. It just happens to be one of the few prepackaged blended organic products available throughout much of the east coast. There are others that work similarly, especially on the west coast, where organic products are in high demand. Ask at your local nursery what organic brands they do sell.
