Typically, organic fertilizers are expensive down here. The feed stores in town that carry blood meal etc. have priced it as niche products. Does anyone have recommendations for online stores for organic fertilizers at a reasonable price and shipping costs?
take a look at Peaceful Valley Farm & Garden Supply.
It's a California company that's been around since the mid-1970's, their prices are reasonable and their products are really high quality in my experience.
They have a lot of liquid concentrate fertilizers, so you can keep shipping costs down that way.
Also things like kelp in powdered form, also cheap for shipping.
I've bought pellet type fertilizers a few times too, and the shipping still wasn't too bad. They seem to really try to keep those costs down.
This is also a good source for beneficial nematodes, and beneficial insects etc.
I'm late to this thread... but we have an (almost) local guy (Ron Jeffries) who supplies amendments to all the local organic growers in my area. His business grew from buying his own amendments for his CSA to first supplying just locally, and now delivering into NC/SC. He also ships. I trust this man!
I find his ethics suit me... he's not just selling stuff for the profit but because he believes as we do, that avoiding toxins is important. Some of his prices are the best I have seen. The Surround™ that I got to spray on my fruit trees is way under the going rate, nearly by half but I forget exactly.
