Alfalfa & Gypsum Pelletts

daviedearest(z10 FLA)April 27, 2014

I'm from the S.W. Florida area outside Ft. Meyers just received Delbard on Fortuniana stock & have been advised as to a 1 year fertilizing planting instructions. Among the ingred. are alfalfa pelletts & Gypsum pelletts. Have tried all local garden shops & the big box stores to no avail. can anyone point me in their direction?

Look at a Farmer's distributor. Like a Farmer's Co-op or something like that.

I find bagged alfalfa at my local nursery, but it's a bit expensive for a larger number of roses. Finally purchased a 50 lb bag of pellets at a feed store (horse food). It's way too much, but was only $11. You have to be careful there is nothing else but alfalfa in the pellets. They don't break down as fast as the bagged stuff from the nursery which is like a powder almost.

Check to make sure that the alfalfa pellets do not contain salt or other additives that may cause problems, many pellets do contain additives when they are labeled for horse feed. I buy plain alfalfa meal, a powder with no additives, at a farm supply feed mill for about $11 per 50# bag.
