N95 helps a lot, especially for dry mixes. Great score on the Pro Mix. I found those same bags of sphagnum peat moss (I suppose from last year) for $3 at the Eastlake Walmart. I got 4 and when I went back, gone.

I check their clearance and the HD clearance areas as a matter of habit, sometimes I find cool stuff.

mine don't seem to carry any reduced price either.
Tomorrow I am going to check WM, Lowes and Tractor Supply, looking for reduced prices. We have NO Home Depot around here. I like HD gardening center better than Lowes.

I bought some at my local store too.In wondering would it be ok to use in place of seed starter? We are in the process of moving and I really don't want to buy more mix and move if this would work ok.

I've been using it for seeds with no problem, make sure you wet it first.

Being that I ran out of MG and seed starting mix today at the same time - it's time to buy some Pro Mix.

I'm going to check Wal Mart tomorrow. Here the cheapest price I can find for Pro-Mix bx
3 cu ft compressed is $36.99. Getting ridiculously expensive.

Today I was at WM. NOT-A-Thing special.
I just bought couple bags of compost manure and 2 bags of pine bark mulch. @ $2.90 / 2 c-ft was ok. I use them to make potting mix and as amendment in garden. In my sandy soil the can retain moisture better. The rest of stuff was mostly name brand potting mixes at regular price.
Lowes garden center was boring as usual.

My Walmart doesn't have anything in the garden center yet except a small seed display. I see some bags of mulch and garden soil 30 feet up top of steel shelves. They are starting to stock up.

Give it time, it's not planting time yet for most of the country. I know we want it to start but I'm sure they're working their way up north and I bet Promix is maxed out on making it with a large order like Walmart.

It's a new product and it doesn't show up at my store either when I use stock checker.
http://stockbyme.com/stock-check/walmart/?sku=

the SKU for organic is 25849002053, regular 25849003050
