Hey Shirlz - erm, what are you saying? lol
They were the cheapest I found as listed above. But still not as cheap as local supermarket.

Excellent tip Andy. Yeah, they're just calling it by it's proper name. Will have to search for those.

Fee - :cheers: Looks good, will report back when the darn site loads. lol

Sorry Nikki

If you buy 100kg it works out cheap :lol:

I get mine from suma as part of the neeps food co-op - not much use to you unless you start your own. www.suma.coop - our price for it is £1.79 per kilo.

Ok Fee, I worked out that purchasing 5x2kg bags (10kg) with p&p from would come to £2.36 p/kg.

Not the cheapest. :(

Did I work it out right?

Shirlz - 100kg! omg! lol I guess if you're buying that much and the postage doesn't increase oper kilo, it would be quite cheap indeed.

Ooh, you have a great deal there with neeps.

Ah, so it probably isn't as cheap as it seemed on first glance then :?

The problem is that here i can't find anywhere that sells it in more than a little pot.

Yeah, it's a balance between cost and eco-friendly it is. Lots and lots of little pots means lots and lots of plastic.

Did someone say pool suppliers stock it? I would like to check something local like that. Our local chemists just looked at me weird, like perhaps I was thinking of building bombs. :mrgreen:
