help finding ingredients for mineralized topsoil in austin texas

I'm currently in the rinsing phase of my top soil project. I understand after that is finished I am supposed to add red potting clay, dolomite, and potash afterward? I am from somewhat of a small town and am having trouble locating any of those ingredients.

I'll be in Austin Texas this weekend for the south by southwest music festival and was hoping I might be able to locate some of this stuff while I'm there. Does anyone from the area by chance have any leads on some places in town that I could drop in and find the rest of my minneralized topsoil ingredients.

Or would I just be fine using root tabs and laterite once my soil is rinsed? Thanks for the help!
