To all who will listen.

I wrote on another forum and will post this in Garden Exchange and hope that noone will discipline me for this. :(

I am trying to get my local area stores to start supplying organic products such as horticultural corn meal, corn gluten meal, horticultural molasses, and the such.

I have written several vendors around here such as Lowes and Home Depot but do not know if they will listen with only on e-mail/snail mail being written.

I am asking if any of you or the Dirt Doctor for that matter, would write to these vendors, or even Walmart, about carrying organic products in this area.

I live in the Lake Jackson/Clute area south of Houston and am trying to get a business out of Houston to start supplying products around here so that I do not have to drive all the way to Houston to get these products.

It is just a suggestion and I am not trying to get anyone to make business deals or the such but instead just trying to let our local businesses know that organic products are definitely a way to go.

Thanks for your listening.

Try contacting Tejas Organics. They are a new distributor in the Houston area & should be able to let you know who handles organic products in your area.

603 Leisure Lane, Ste.300
Friendswood, TX 77546
Phone: 281-648-3364

You might be more successful in your search by contacting local garden/feed stores in your area. The big box stores are not too interested at this time.

The "soap" you use is normally chemicals, etc. Use real SOAP !!

KHWOZ is right. When more people demand organic products, the big box stores will listen. Until then, let's give the more people-friendly local nurseries an opportunity to be of service. :wink:
