    That's just over $16-17 per bag....

    What's the complaint?

    I was in Home Depot yesterday and the prices for Scotts for Fert with Halts is $45 +/- and the weed - n - feed is $35 +/-.

    What is the price supposed to be?

    Same product last year was 9.95 per bag. So yeah, this is not as good.

    Last year I was paying around $12/bag. I knew prices were going up, but $4 more a bag I wasn't expecting.

    Are you getting your 25-0-25 at the Coop off 81? That's where I was getting mine, but not this year. I stopped in there on Monday and ordered a ton thinking it was going to be around the same prices as last year. I thought she screwed up on the price when she told me it came to $700 and change!:cry: So I told her forget it, I'm not paying that much for straight fertilizer and left.

    Was at Lesco picking up Pre-M and Tom told me prices are going up AGAIN on May 12th!:cry::cry::cry:
