Found A New Dimension Supplier Northeast

Hey Guys,

I just found a new source for fert here in MD. The company is called Growmark FS. The mostly sell ag ferts, but I stopped in to check them out. I spoke with the rep about dimension, the prices were good. They sell 50lb bags of 19-3-7 Dimension .10 50% over the counter for $17.79. I asked about pallet quantity , he said a single pallet will drop to $14.59 per bag,and beyond that he can work a better deal. I know some of you buy big & save big but for smaller guys the prices seemed pretty good. I grabbed a single bag to try it out, the prill was standard same as Lesco, little dust . The rep said he can get any reg ferts, and selective herbs. For you all in the northeast they have distributors in MD DE VA PA NJ. There web is Growmark.com, it looks like it is mostly farming, but they carry turf products. I thought prices were good for just walking in, took me a while to get good prices from Lesco.

The rep said they have different divisions all over, but on east coast its GROWMARK FS. Thats great they can do special blends, I assume you would need to place a larger order to justify it though. If it all works out, I will be only buying spreaders at lesco. The rep was great, he can order any NPK ratio I would need, with about a 10 day lead time. I hate going into lesco and having to get stocked fert, mid summer and they carry 46-0-0??

Yes, conserv is a divison of growmark. I can order a pallet of custom blend as long i give him some heads up also. Great guys to deal with and the seed blends there beat the pants off lesco also. Only thing i buy from lesco anymore is spread and spray equipment. Materials come from CONSERV F/S
