Gardens Alive! which uses the name Escar-Go! sells a 5 pound box which does
go a long way.  If you are not on their mailing list, do get on it.  At
least twice a year they offer a coupon of $20 free when you buy $20 worth.
Even with freight this brings the price of this product into a reasonable
range.  It is the only way I buy it.
