    It is too bad you guys don't have Earl Mays. Usaully they are very over priced, but I purchased a nice looking 10 lb bag for 19.95. I needed a lot for the bog.

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I was able to find some at Lowes(1/2 hr. drive). They had the 432cu. in. bags(Luster Leaf) for $3.33(a real bargain). The stuff comes from Chile.

    Wickedthistle,
    Maybe the store at Pico Riveira is cheaper than the Burbank store?

    Hi Mike,

    Pico Riveira does sound cheaper, but I live in Burbank so it's easier for me to get it there [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Thanks though!

    Copper,

    I live in Lincoln, Nebraska and we have Earl May. Ours sells only the Wisconsin kind for about the price you quoted. I have never seen the premiums kinds at Earl May(another nursery gets Chilean, time to time). I wonder if they goofed and are selling you the good stuff for the price of the cheaper quality Wisconsin stuff.

    Regards,

    Joe

    The quality of the Chilean sphagnum is very good at this time of the year. The two bags I got contained very few sticks, roots, leaves etc. Maybe the sphagnum is actively growing right now.
    The quality of the Chilean sphagnum that I got at the end of summer was poor. There were lots of roots, branches etc.
