Looking for dolomite, potash, and clay in Texas


I posted this in the Texas forum but it doesn't get much traffic.
I'll be traveling to north Austin TX (round rock) fairly frequently. I live in college station and we cannot get any of the mineralized topsoil supplies locally. I need dolomite, potash, and potters clay. Anybody know of a location in north Austin that carries those items? OR better yet anyone have enough to spare to cover a 75 gallon tank for a few years?? Let me know! Thanks!

Ps. I've had offers to have some shipped, but I would prefer to not have packages coming to my house via priority mail. Looking to pick up locally!

Try feed stores for the potash and hobby lobby for the clay

You can buy small quantities of dolomite & potash on Amazon.

Most dolomite is sold as dolomite-lime. Apparently, you want pure crushed dolomite ore.

For example, you don't want this

You do want this

This product is available at just about every garden center in Texas, about $6-$7.

I think it comes from NM--many years ago I had an uncle who worked at the potash mine in Carlsbad!
