Lesco Fert

From what I hear JDL isn't carrying lesco anymore. I have heard andersons and howard has some good fert. What is a good blend for spring on warm season grasses? Having to venture out I have been using lesco fert for years. Thanks

See if there is an Helena Chem near you. Excellent product @ about 1/2 the price of Lesco

Just picked up some Lesco today from JDL. Maybe a regional thing.

I don't know why you've heard that JDL isn't carrying Lesco fert anymore. My store just got in 110 pallets of Lesco's 19-0-6 Dimension .10%. We're definitely carrying it up here in Massachusetts. The name is still going strong.

LESCO's fert was gone when TCS started blending it years back. Same quality specs, as LESCO used. So no one knew any different. Didn't matter. That's over now. No more TCS clean fert in a LESCO bag once TCS bought inventory runs out. It's all a matter of time. They got big inventory.

TCS is in Sebring Fla. and still going strong bagging fert for several different marketing companies. Shortly after Lesco sold the now TCS plant, I bought a pallet of fert from the then UHS (United Horticulture Supply). There in the middle of the 40 bag pallet were two Lesco bags. Same blend just different Bags.

BTW I tried to buy direct from TCS, Sorry no deal there. They wouldn't sell to me.
