Sale: Cottonseed meal 50lb(60% discount) group order
« on: December 10, 2018, 12:36:35 PM »
Iím taking a group preorder for cottonseed meal. The price is $45 for 50lb but  we must have 60
Mimium bags in order to get the discount price. Amazon sells it for $76.65 so $45 is a great deal. https://www.amazon.com/Down-Earth-Cottonseed-Meal-50/dp/B0041F5AK0
 
Behl and I did a preorder group sale in 2015 that went well. PM, email or text me if you are interested we will give this two weeks to see if we can meet the 60 bags minimum before we start taking any moneys. Pick up only in La Habra. Here is the 2015 thread with the analysis and remarks
http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=18279.0

N,P,K: 6.2.1
Quoting Behl:
ďAn acidic fertilizer great for plants that love acidic soils such as Mangoes, Cheromoyas, Blueberries, and other tropical fruits.
Slow release fertilizer with many trace nutrients.Ē

This fertilizer is excellent in lowering PH, something that all So Cal folks need given lack of rains and the alkalinity and hardness of our municipality water. Winter is the perfect time to feed fruit trees so that the fertilizer leaches into the soil. So prep yr soil and strengthen yr trees for the upcoming anona scions sale in March!

Never used this kind, still have Osmocote Plus that'll be enough for me for at least a year, but willing to try, so may I just reserve one bag, Frank?
Thanks!

ps. I notice the minimum group order in 2015 were only 2 bags, and now 60 bags??

Hi Sam
Yes one is fine. In 2015 we had a cap of 2 bags per person. This time around we took that cap off so if you want to buy 10 or 20 itís fine it gets us closer to the required 60 bags. I will start counting down once we reach the halfway point(30). Thanks

I guess I am closer to the cotton fields but I just bought 2 fifty pound bags for $20 each at
my local feed store? They had to special order it and it took a week to get?

Hi Gabe

I'll keep you posted so far there hasn't been an overwhelming responds we need 60 bags to move forward with this group order. I'll give it a few more weeks to see if it picks up.

Due to the overwhelming demand I will do another group order for summer. I will start to take preorders in March so if you missed out last time you have one more change to order yr cottonseed meal in summer.
