Thanks for the heads up! Picked some up and shared this with my FB group.
Continuing my journey to disprove those who say "You can't grow that in the desert" since 2013.

Use it for anything in a pot. It's awesome stuff. I used it for years when we were growing and selling trees. $15 for an 8 pound bag (with shipping!) is extremely cheap. I was paying more per pound when I was buying it in 50 pound bags at the local nursery supply and driving over there to pick it up.

But you better hurry. Amazon will kick up the price pretty quickly when a lot of people start buying.

Amazon says 8lbs/$19.87 for me. Still $2 cheaper than the local store. Not worth stocking for $2 for me. Thanks for the head up though.

Fall/Winter coming... Normal decrease in sales... Time to put on sale... Done... Large volume purchased... Time to take off sale...

If wanted to purchase again at lower price... stop buying with fall winter coming... wait wait wait... And it will come...

What’s the shelf life on these things?  Is it good to stock up and hold it for a year or so?

I guess price changing is instantaneous, automatically preprogrammed nowadays...
I still remember the days that when the gasoline prices were being changed by hand with long poles... ;D

i had to give it a try after reading some of the comments. got it at $15 too.

i'm sure most you know but using camelcamelcamel makes it easy to get alerted for any price drops in the range you want.
