Where is everyone finding MGO? I check Walmart and Home Depot today, no luck. Amazon is selling it for $35 which doesnít seem right. Is there an alternative I could use? Thank you in advance!

I may have answered my own question here. But will this mix work for Walstead method?

In case you are still interested in MGO, check out Kmart. My local Kmart sells 8 quarts MGOC potting mix (the traditional orange colored bag) for $7.xx whereas Amazon sells it for $35 or so. There is a list of sellers including Kmart on the MG website.
