    It's not a bag. It's a bale. It's the size of a footrest at the end of an easy chair. They are not in the bagged soil section. I think I paid 8 bucks for a bale of peat a year and a half ago and I still have enough to last me through Armageddon.

    Oh...I'm not exactly sure where that would be, then. Would it at least be in the garden section?

    Are you looking in a Homedepot or Lowes? It'd be outside in palates.

    Look for other bags of stuff like gravel, perlite, and red cedar mulch. It'll be around there.

    Lowes. I did find cedar mulch, but I didn't get it. Perlite was from Miracle-Gro as well.

    Capensis - I've found the lowes and home depots around here to be just about worthless. No peat at all, hit and miss on insecticides, and they only carry MiracleGro products. That's it. No cedar, no bark, nothing.

    So - I've found a locally owned nursery that is much better. Carries peat - the real stuff, in different size packages, from 1 cubic foot on up. Perlite in all sorts of sizes. Long fiber sphagnum, and on and on. Also carries orchid bark, redwood, cedar bark and mulch, and several dozen other media.

    Have you checked any of your local mom and pop nurseries? It's worth a shot. Call around and save drive time.

    I was actually going to ask to go to the local nursery, but I asked once about peat there, and they mentioned Ace Hardware. So after Lowes, we went there (the two being like, next to each other), nothing. Then my mom insisted on going to Wal-Mart and being the last place to go for today. But, I do still have some peat left. I can maybe do 50/50 orchid bark/LFS? I found the New Zealand kind, I think.
