    I buy it at Summerwinds Nurery in San Jose. Corner of Almaden Expy. and Branham Ln.

    What size bag are you looking for? I get the "medium bale" (2.2 cu. ft.), which if I remember right cost about 10 bucks and is more than enough to keep the average CP grower going for quite some time. The same nursery also sells a good quality sand for about $6/ 50 lb. bag.
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.

    Thanks! I wonder if the Sunnyvale stores has got it, I do most of my grocery shopping frequently around that area. If not, it won't hurt to drive to the San Jose store.

    I will be checking the Summerwinds branch in Mountain View this weekend to see if they sell Sunshine Peat Moss and sand. Thanks for the info Steve.

    actually I've heard the opposite between schultz and scotts. Schultz may have fert added. I use scotts in all my plants and have no problems.

    same here.

    I think most brands, if they have fertilizers, will openly advertise that fact in order to attract people who grow weird things like flowers and tomatoes.

    Hey vftgrrl, lemme know if the Mountain View Summerwinds has got Sunshine, might save me from running to the Sunnyvale one! Thanks a lot!

    As for Scotts and Schultz, never heard anything bad (nor used b4), just been told to get bales over bags.....

    Here's the link to the topic that indicates Scotts Peat may be problematic. I don't use the small bags of peat - only the bales.
