Canadian Ferts? Poll!

I have had a message posted to me by a fellow member who is frustrated in obtaining ferts for their tanks. US suppliers are not willing to ship cross boarder.

I can get the following without any difficulty:
K2SO4 Potassium Sulphate
KNO3 Potassium Nitrate
KH2PO4 Mono Potassium Phosphate
MgSO4 Magnesium Sulphate
TE Trace elements

These are in dry format. Prices are to be determined. If I qualify as a reseller (to be determined by the manufacturer), then I can offer them at what you would normally pay, or if not there would be a slight mark up over retail.

This will determine if I decide to carry the products at all.

Let me know what you think

I've used 2 sources within Canada that supply everything listed (one in BC and one local in Winnipeg). I'm not sure why I see posts of fellow Canadians having so many issues finding dry ferts in Canada. There are 15 hydroponic shops in Ontario that sell the same that I'm buying locally.

We can always use another source though and definitely would be nice to have a choice of more than one brand of trace, etc.

I am the aformentioned guy looking for ferts, I have tried hydroponics stores, but there are none around here anymore, all shut down. I tried finding stump remover which is supposedly KNO3, but it is not sold around here, or any other hardware/gardening store I have looked in.

I am waiting to hear back from the manufacturer. So far it looks good, but as a "retailer" I may have a larger buy in that I would initially like.

shipping would be cheaper for someone in canada to do it vs buying from usa. though if you dont do this send them to me ill ship to them.
