I am considering having a co-op for fertilizer. Looking for anyone interested. If you are is there a certain kind you like more then others? What count do you use? I like a time released balanced 13-13-13. I am looking at getting bulk bag(s) and weight it out to smaller bags that will fit in flat rate boxes due to the weight of the product.

WHO is interested?

Secondly anyone interested in a .Impress-O Tags co-op. buying in bulk is cheaper. Looking at these aluminum plant marker tags, If you have not used them use any pen or pointed object and wright on tag and it puts its impression in it can use both sides and comes with wire to tie to plants pots most anything you want to mark. can even use double sided tape to use to label flat surfaces like drawers and shelves. Usually comes in 100 ct box. looking to get a large bulk amount and splitting them in the co-op anyone looking for great tags?

Anyone interested???

let me know here and if you have anything else your looking for suggestions also?

Mike I am interested in both tags and ferts.

I know we talked privately about these fertilizer brands I am just throwing out the names as my preferences:

Nutricote slow release
Dyno-gro Foliage Pro Liquid 9-3-6 - Liquid Fert, best IMHO for pots and my automatic fertigator

I can always pick up at your location and see if anyone wants some in my area.

It looks like there is a call for the tags for sure can you all just give an idea on how many tags they normally come in boxes of 100. any ideas how meny you would like. Im thinking if i can combine these tags with something else it would be nice to save on shipping to you.

Any idea what the price will be? I think that will kind of help me decide how many "I need" I have never priced these tags out.

the tags run anywhere from 15.00 for 50 plus shipping ----on ebay

a good deal is 15.00 for 100 tags plus shipping

i think i am looking at .12-.13 per tag i know its not a great savings but i might get a bit cheaper if we can go for a larger quantity then 500 tags. shipping i would love to ship to you with other idems to save that money other wise depends how many you want i will ship the least expensive way but cant give you any idea on shipping from me to you till i know how many and where you live

Carey I know what you are talking about and this is why someone asked me if i could find any and do a co-op. the one kind a lot of people is so darn expensive. i went and get what i could afford 2- 14 lb bags and spent like 38.00 not bad but i came home and feed 99% of my plants and guess how much i used.....14 lbs of it!!!. i am in search for a great price. I know some like a balanced and some like different kinds for different time of year.. i think for this im looking for a balanced unless i find different kinds for foliage and flowering..


Paul (chavez) told me about Nutricote slow release I find this a real interesting one it does not depend on watering to desolve and feed only it takes in to an account the temperature. and it comes in 180+360 witch is from what i read the length of time it releases for. its a bit high but not as high as the "o" kind that so many use

i might not be on here as much for a few days but rest assured im not gone

im doing a job for someone and just received 2 cs of plants and i need to ship some and plant the others (410 plants arrived Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing ) oh yea i have 3 co-ops open and 2 closing in the next few days so i will monitor here just might not post a lot this week.

The price for 100 sounds good. I know it is still an estimate, but I would be interested. I just can't see a cost savings shipping fertilizer from Florida to Seattle. It seems like such a heavy thing to deal with.

Yes i thought so to. the only thing i can say is find out the price for a bag and divide it by the pound. then compare the per pound price of what you use and what i find. It has taken a lot of thought for this and i think it will not be cost effective for some UNLESS i can get a fertilizer that is top notch and find a cheap way to ship. But i am as much a skeptic as anyone about this. im just throwing it out there for people to compare and see where it goes.


can a few of you send me your zip codes that live far away so i can research shipping rates to see what that looks like PLEASE>
