Dry ferts in England

Does anyone know where to buy dry ferts in England, none of my local stores stock it? Mail order would be good.

I list some sources in my Guide.

And I have ferts and ship to England. I just checked out the suggested web site and their KNO3 is over $15 for 1.1 lbs. That's pretty steep. $2 a pound is what I sell it for.

Actually i've e-mailed Rex Grigg for some prices from the USA, and it would work out a hell of a lot cheaper to buy the dry ferts from him and get them shipped over, rather than buy them in the UK. It works out at about 1/2 of the price including shipping, for the same amount of the products.

Now, if only payday would hurry up!!

Just out of interest i priced up the 4 main dry ferts you need, KH2P04, KN03, K2S04, and CSM+B, for approximately 2 lb of the first three, and 1 lb of the trace elements. From Aqua Essentials it came to £57-96 including free shipping, and from Rex Grigg in the USA it came to $50, which when converted comes to £25-21, including shipping, yes i said including shipping!!!!!

Quite a saving i think you'll agree.
