    Does anyone know of some fertilizer suppliers in the upper-midwest / minneapolis or W. Wisconsin area?

    I've been dealing with Lesco, and they are alright. The stores seem to have a limited fertilizer selection and if they don't carry it, then they don't like ordering it. Also, I need to order from MN so I can't get ferts with Phosphorus.

    I also want to do more liquid apps and Lesco has a very limited supply of affordable spray-ables. Where is everyone getting there liquid? I've look on-line for hours and only come up with dead-end leads.

    Help and insight is always appreciated:usflag:

    I have noticed this as well. I still use them though because they are only minutes from me. Is there a Helena Chemical up there? They are a pretty good company to deal w/.

    John Deere landscapes has a store in or near the cities. As much farming that goes on around there, I would think there would be plenty of places to purchase fertilizer.

    What formulation are you looking for?
