David, a few years back, I found an organic farmer at my local farmer's market who bought bags of organic fertilizer in bulk. He was willing to sell me a couple of bags, cheaper than I could get locally. Worth a try.

Where are you located, David?

Rock phosphaate and limestone are best purchased in bulk at places like Agway or Gramco if any are located near you. If not get them at a farmers supply near you. Organic fertilizer can be purchased in 50 lb baags at Lesco. They are mo0stly a wholesale operation for landscapers but they will sell to the general public. The trade name for the fertilizer is Sustane, it's poultry litter and feather meal.
