Help for new guy. Can't find Foxfarms Ocean Forest anywhere.

Been watching this website for a long time and finally joined. I have a 250 watt hps grow cab that i have been using for many years now. It works pretty good but now i have a problem. I can't find foxfarm ocean forest soil anywhere and it's the only soil i ever used that worked. I never had a problem getting it before but now it doesn't seem to be available anywhere. I'm in upstate NY.

If anybody has any suggestions i would be most thankful.

Peat imports from Canada have pretty much stopped since the Covid19 thing started.
That is why you cant find any FFOF soil

my local shops are out as well ....yes, it sucks

Fox farm ocean forrest is basically worm castings, sphagnum peat moss, and a bit of perlite with kelp, crab, and other basic soil ammendments. You can easily replicate the mix yourself.

You can purchase it on EBay for $36.27 plus tax by esbenshadesgardencenter. Just purchased a bag of 1.5 cu ft. Great price!

That’s a horrible price. I pay less than $15 a bag at two different local shops. Only one of the two carries Fox Farm Original Planting Mix, though. I can get a bag of FFOF, OPM, & Light Warrior out the door for $56.

I need to get a few bags this weekend and this thread had me worried. Just checked the site and added 20 bags to my cart, seemingly without issue - no mention of not being in stock.

Possibly just a regional shortage.

Thanks guys.

OK i called Fox farm the other day and this is what they said.

They are cranking out their product just like they always have. They claim there is no slow down on their end for any reason. The only idea they came up with was that when everybody got laid off from their jobs for covid they started gardening to keep themselves busy.

I have no idea what the reason is but thats what they told me.
