Solar Greenhouse and Hydroponics Supply in Burnaby, BC (30 min East of
 Vancouver) carries Plant Products Co. Ltd "Chelated Micronutrient Mix",
as well
as K2SO4 and KNO3 (Potasium Sulfate and Potasium Nitrate).

K2SO4 - 1 pound $1.95
KNO3   - 1 pound $2.95
Trace   - 100g  $4.95

The trace element mix is (I believe) the same used by Sears/Conlin
Analysis is as follows (from the label)
Fe      7%
Mn      2%
Zn      0.4%
Cu      0.1%
B       1.3%
Mo      0.06%

EDTA    42%
DTPA    13%

Somone on the list (Tim Mullins?) mentioned that this mix no longer
containg Boron (B).  The
label on the shelf stated the analysis above, but Solar repackages it
from bulk, so
the label may be old - just a warning.
