    The 36-0-12 is not coated.

    I'm checking out a new supplier and he rattled off a few prices. They are better prices than I can get at Lesco and he said he would beat any price. Besides that Lesco is too far for me to travel... around 45 minites one way.

    He has several blends/makers of tall fescue that I tried this fall. He sold it to me for $35 a bag. $10 cheaper than Lesco.

    Thanks for the replies..

    Are west coast prices higher? I buy a ton at a time and it cost me $11.25 a fifty pound bag for 21-4-21 50% coated and that was $3.00 cheaper then my other supplier. The cheaper was a locally made fert and the more expensive was Best brand fert.
