Gritty mix and 5-1-1 roadblocks...

fireduck(10a)May 6, 2013

I have known that until you get dialed in...some ingredients can be a challenge to find. 1. The Osmocote Plus is a nighmare to find. I actually ordered online...and the supplier said it is now not available! Where can I find?
The granite I found is at a builder supply yard and is screen 3/8" minus. Is this too big?
Is the lime needed for the 5-1-1 in pellet form or powdered? Which brand/kind do you use?
Thanks for helping...

Don't sweat the Osmocote Plus. Regular Osmocote is fine. I use MG Shake & Feed from Walmart. Any CRF will work. Yes, 3/8" granite is too big. The crushed granite is called Gran-i Grit. I used Manna Pro poultry grit purchased at TSC. Check feed stores for #2 poulty grit. As long as the lime is garden lime your ok. Stay away from hydrated lime.
