Canadian supplier for ferts?

Is there a Canadian supplier for dry ferts? I find the search hard to deal with, I get a ton of irrelevent results, I'm probably just not good at it. Anyways, would like to know if there are suppliers that ship to canada or suplliers in canada that have dry ferts.

thanks, kara

You should check your local hydroponic store or supplier.

As suggested most hydroponic stores will have a good selection. As soon as I get ramped up and ready to sell I should be able to ship to Canada.

www.hydroponics.com is a Canadian mail order company for fertilizers. I haven't had any problems with them when I've placed orders.

If you are in BC, and especially the Lower Mainland, hydroponics stores are a dime a dozen here. Plenty of places which ship also. I don't know of any which ship though, at least not advertised.

Lots of hydroponics outlets here on the island too, Progressive Growth is where I go usually... I'm shopping around for ferts though, I wasn't too pleased with the quality of the potassium nitrate I got from them last time.

Just plain old dry ferts. Tell them what you are looking for (KNO3, KH2PO4, K2SO4, etc). They'll usually be just generic containers that are packaged into 1 and 5 lbs containers with store labels. These guys just buy this stuff in bulk and repackage it.
