    Hi All
    Ordering from the states can get crazy expensive.
    I made a list of Canadian Suppliers (I'm sure I miss some)


    Organics
    http://blackswallowsoil.com/ I've ordered from here.
    http://www.reindeersnatural.ca/index.htm I've ordered from here.
    http://www.boogie-brew.ca/amendments.php I've ordered from here.

    I get my Rice hulls here
    https://www.beergrains.com/

    Between Ottawa and Cornwall
    http://www.homesteadorganics.ca/default.aspx They don't ship but if it's local

    Millenniumsoils Coir
    https://www.vgrove.com/index.php?p=Online_Store

    Hopefully this helps at least one person :)
    I would love to list your local places to get soil amendments.

    Well if you actually saw the profit margin on hydro equipment in Canada you'd realize why there is shipping costs. If a shop could make $100 profit on a ballast than they would include free shipping but when they only make $30-40 profit obviously they're not going to pay the $20-25 shipping say from BC to Toronto not including any shipping for warranty stuff.

    As for specialty soil, find out the ingredients and there are lots of places in Canada that can make you custom mixes like West Creek Farms in For Langley BC.

    I almost bought one of your lights but you didn't have it in stock at the time. I ended up with something similar.

    Hey like I was saying in another thread.
    For 1 cubic yard delivered with some amendments already added should cost in the 175-200 range.
    You would have to google a soil place in your area as someone mentioned if you call and consulate I'm sure they can build you a great BASE Soil. Including
    Peat moss
    Perlite
    Vermiculite
    Maybe even Worm castings.
    However you will have to source out the other amendments like
    Kelp meal
    Azomite
    Bone meal
    And a few others.
    I stay away from blood meal for a few reasons. ( takes too long to be available
    Already have enough N from WC)
    I get my Soil from Pagonis Live bait here in GTA
    My soil amendements I think your looking for come from http://greengardenerssupplies.com/
    Please check website.
    Contact Peter if you don't see something you need.
    You name it it I'm sure he has or can come up with it.
    From Rock Dust to bat guano. Rice hulls, Oyster shells, the list goes on.
    Hope this helps.
    I'll give out all my secrets if it helps lol.
    He will ship Canada Post.
    As per insect control Not sure what people's feelings are on Canadian Tire Bug B Gone!!
    I used it on the outdoor for spider mites and what not and it performed awesome.

    I was just using it as an example on crazy shipping costs from the United States.

    I always try to source locally and would never ship dirt. Well only from Home Hardware as they have free shipping :)

    I only had trouble sourcing locally Neam Meal ,KARANJA OIL, Neam Oil , Humic Acid, Crab Meal, Oyster flour and DE.

    I'm hoping to make a list of local suppliers of amendments

    I'll add http://greengardenerssupplies.com/ to the list

    Cheers

    Could I just remove topsoil by my dugout and replace it with cattle manure? Just pump water from the dugout to the plants? Maybe add hydroponic Nutrients in a reservoir, adjust pH and gravity feed? I don't really need to buy dirt, I have hills full of the stuff.
    The dugout is fed from an underground spring near it.
