Hi Guys,

I've ran out of trace mix and could do with getting some this weekend.

Is this stuff readily available from any garden centre or is it a little more specialist?

Hi Same,

I'm aware of garden direct but as i'm out and about visiting a couple of garden centres this weekedn i was wondering if i could pick up some trace elements locally. I have macro in abundance.

Traces are OK but they may not be chelated, which is an expression meaning the holding the nutrient for a longer time to give the plant an opportunity to use it. This is not that big of a deal though as you can just add it more frequently.

Trace Element mixes are quite rare in garden centres. As Them says most are complete mixes including NPK which can contain urea/ammonium.

Also as Ceg says some use unchelated traces if not mixing into a ready made liquid solution.
