    How much is everyone paying for 30-0-6?
    I am now being charged $26 per bag pricing, this seems like it has increased faster than the usual "increase in prices"

    If you understand Business Models then you will understand JDL/Lesco Pricing. JDL/Lesco has a Retail Store in just about every town. They are not unlike 7-11 with a store on every corner. They even sell single bags of fertilizer to home owners.

    Helena and Crop Production Services (or What ever they call themselves now) might have 3 to 5 warehouses in the whole state of Florida. They deliver once a week to each area in their region. When they deliver to me, they are also delivering to 2 golf course and a Driving range with in a few blocks of me. They are also making these deliveries with an 18 wheeler and pallets of product.

    I am not a big customer of JDL/Lesco. But I appreciate they have a store in my area. They are my 7-11 when I can't wait for a Sam's Club delivery.
