    As far as I know we have these dealers for fertilizer and associated chemicals:
    SiteOne
    Howard Fertilizer
    Green Resource
    Harrells
    for those of you in the South that have these suppliers for your fert supplies, is there a noticeable price difference between these locations?
    We have been using SiteOne exclusively because they are the closest to our shop and we like the employees at our location.

    I realize that I can't be "friends" with all of my vendors and at some point I need to chase better prices & quality products.

    I will be making some phone calls Monday to see what these other companies have to offer. But wanted to see what you guys thought? Are they apples to apples? And this is for those of you that have used any of the companies listed. We are in Charlotte NC and not sure if there is any other companies that we haven't heard of?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately we don't have one of them. I was looking for more specific dealings with companies we might have in the Charlotte NC area.

    I deal with all three. I’ve found Howard to have the best prices on chemicals. You can custom blend fertilizer with Howard and Harrell’s also. Site ones prices reflect the convienence in my opinion, but I was there today.

    We have friends at Site One, Ewing, and Howard's.

    Mostly we use Ewing, but SiteOne carries a couple of products that Ewing doesn't.

    Our local Ewing has lots of organic stuff, so that's why we are there alot.

    Prices seem to be about the same.
