I have everything you will need and they will be as cheap and in most cases cheaper than anywhere else that you will find. Pm me if interested.

Defining cheap is not as simple as it sounds!

If you mean cheap per pound, you can get some real deals by going down to the farm supply and buying a big bag. But then you have lots of other costs involved. Like finding one who will sell ferts which are now called weapons of terror by some. Driving twenty miles out to get it and then storing a supply which may be enough to last several lifetimes is another project as well.

If the upfront cost is the only cheap definition, there may be places on E-bay or such. But then there are also scams and swindlers at work and those can sure cost you!

I would go for some of the folks here on this forum and settle for great service at reasonable pricesfrom known sources. Sometimes life really is too short for the "bargains".

I feel I did very well ordering from nilocg. Totally recommend. No offense to others, I just have not tried them.
