    Two links that I had bookmarked for wholesale propagation trays are busted. I am trying to find a wholesaler with a good rep on the West Coast, given the shipping costs up here to Alaska. I did find one place that worked out to $59 per 100, but I had to take 500 and now I can't find them online.

    I *think* it was McConkey Co. Can anyone get into their website? Or, does anyone know a place in WA state that will wholesale?

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you tried Carlin Horticultural? They seem to have quite a selection. Also on Ebay you can find some stuff. I have to put in a big order this spring for nursery pots but since McConkey seems to not be there I guess I will go with Carlin.

    Pouncer Trust Worty in Soldotna, Alaska sells that stuff really cheap in bulk. Contact them. By the way the price for pint wide mouth jars was $7.89 a doz. and for Alaska prices that is great. Shipping would be cheap as it would be in state.

    Kasilofhome, thanks so much.....contacted a friend who has a greenhouse (mostly perennials but she does do annuals too) and she orders through Alaska Mill in "Los Anchorage", but I have given her the link to McConkey direct so we'll see. That's a decent price on pint jars but this fall I found pints on "closeout" at WalMart and picked up another dozen cases. They were $7.28 with tax-I about fell over, lol

    One can never have too many wide mouth pints!!

    What is special about Trustworthy is they really beat out the large chains on so many prices. The price for the jars was the season price. I am pretty sure that the price that they had the trays was 88cents on sale but the season price was a dollar each last season.

    Also in April they have a blow out sale. There are item with special that last for a week and then bonas daily sales. I wish that I had 49 dollars the day I saw the 8by 12 portable greenhouse which norm went for 169 dollars for less than 50

    They have specials on gardening hand tools that are 75% less than Fred Meyer prices.
    They are the place to go for gloves.

    I sound like an ad for them. It is just that they have special ordered items for me (special bar for a very old chainsaw) They stand behind the products, treat employee pretty good. (ok very good from what I have personally seen)
