Let's keep this post alive, considering prices are ever changing and new shops open up all the time.

Also we need more sources in the Denton, Lewisville, Frisco area!

So far I purchased CGM $20.70 for 50lbs. at D & L Feed in Aubrey (east of Denton, west of Frisco) off Hwy 377, they had other products too.

I will be calling around this week since I'm picking up supplies for the landscaping company I work for, so I'll keep probing around for good deals and keep you all up to date. Keep the post alive, these pre-mixed organic fertilizer prices are a little discouraging to the converts.

One thing I would like to emphasize is that not all these stores are going to be TOTALLY organic. Check here for a list of TORC acceptable and unacceptable products:

Shades of Green in Frisco is completely organic. 10% off organic ammendments and fertilizers for Ground Crew members.

The Lewisville Feed Store carries molasses, Garrett Juice... These guys are great! They will help you find what you want even if it is from a competitor!

County Feed & Pet Supply 940-387-6732

AG Grand 940-464-7132
Argyle , TX is well worth the drive for some of the most super-charged compost tea --- it's aerated :!: --- They also offer for sale compost aerators in several sizes for home use up to a large scale operation.

Just a bit, but from what I've seen of the options in Denton, I'm going to be checking out that store in Sanger once it warms back up. (Tomorrow's gonna be brutal!)

Great place to buy bulk compost, mulch, soil mixes, etc.

Much cheaper and better quality than the bagged stuff.

The people are very knowledgeable and friendly too.

:D I agree wholeheartedly! This is where I get my mulch and bedding materials. They do not use pine bark mulch in their products. Some of the other suppliers do. It's close to home, too! (Carrollton) :wink:

Since the Sanger General Store relocated to Decatur, why not drive over to Argyle? AG Grand 940-464-7132 Argyle , TX can hook you up with aerated compost tea. Call ahead and let them know how much you want and they will have it ready for you. They also sell compost tea aerators in many sizes!

Hmmm... I just now noticed this. That's a shame. So where's this AG Grand? I'm getting low on various cornmeal products. There are other places in Denton to get it, but the Sanger place had pretty good prices.

I often hear them mentioned as a more "inexpensive" source for, f'rinstance "corn meal" in 50 lb. bags. (Hint, hint) Can anyone recommend some feed stores in the N. Dallas/Plano/Frisco area? I know about Wells Bros., shop there for most of my stuff, but I'm seeking alternatives. Thanks!

Since you are in Carrollton, why not drive up to Lewisville? Smith Farm & Garden is there and they might have it, also try Lewisville Feed on Main St.

Pardner's Farm & Garden on Alpha Avenue in Frisco, right off Preston/Hwy 189 and Main street, has horticultural cornmeal for good prices and several other organic products. The owners are a husband & wife team & very sweet and accommodating. They also have a nice selection of plants and carry feeds of all types.

Smith Farm & Garden is a very good place too, and Bill Garrett in their store is very knowledgeable and helpful too.

Kathe :D

Eden's is located at our all natural, horse boarding ranch and chicken farm in Balch Springs; easy access for Dallas & Kaufman County folks via the Seagoville Road exit from I-20, 635 or 175 to Pioneer Road.

Nestled on the outskirts of town at our new location you’ll still find all the nuts and bolts of organic gardening – brand name soil amendments, like Bioform Dry and Texas Tea; pest and disease control like horticultural corn meal & plant oil insect controls; seeds; vegetable plant starts; lush, healthy perennials, flowering shrubs, and annuals to spruce up your yards - you'll just be shopping in the company of friendly chickens, ducks and other farm friends. Plus, on this rustic homestead farm, you'll see some neat native plantings that have been there for generations as well as newly planted demo gardens and see a working 1600 gallon rain harvesting cistern. Plans to actually farm part of the land are underway.

Come grow with us at our new location as I bring safe, organic gardening and living products and information to the Southeast Dallas County area. We'll be bringing in exciting new and hard to find drought tolerant, Texas friendly & native perennials and ornamentals for your flowerbeds! We never know when the rains will stop so we’ll all want to think about using native and drought tolerant plants as our primary choices for sure.
We will continue to seek out local artisians and crafters for thier contributions - rather than import everything we sell. For instance....

NOW available, 100% pure beeswax candles made right here in Dallas! And we carry Jay Mertz's line of Rabbit Hill Farm organic soil amendments from Corsicana Texas. Why pay more for fancy packaging-it doesn't help your soil anyway! Support your local farmers and vendors. Coming soon, fresh, organic produce!

Come in and see us for your 20% Dirt Doctor member discount on most regularly priced items!

Eden’s Organic Garden Center is a fun place to come out to and shop, browse and visit with other gardeners like you! Come experience a taste of the country, just minutes from the city! [color=blue]

Free classes for 2007 are underway.

July 21 Rainwater Harvesting
July 28th Making P.L.A.N.T. People with Miss Janice - Kids 6+ learn some basic gardening and planting. Bring a clean, 1 lb can

Other classes this year will include vegetable gardening, candle making, gardening with kids, composting, container gardens and more! Keep up with all the latest on our website.

Another plug for Soil Building Systems! It is a great source. :D I purchased either the 75/25 bedding soil or the ready to plant mix last year. Winter came and went. In May, my beds began to get overcrowded. I can't believe how much Mexican mint marigold, rosemary, oregano and thyme I have harvested and the beds are still very full. 8)
