Sugar Cane Bales

Valerie starts with ...
I have been trying to source square sugar cane bales here on the Sunshine Coast. They used to be cheap around $3.50 delivered. So far I have only found 2 stockists and the best price is $13.50 plus delivery. As I want about 40 this is too dear. Does anyone on the Sunshine Coast know where I can source square bales at a much cheaper price.

Valerie/Mike,
The $13.50 price may be for those finely chopped cane mulch then packed tight in to Bales like you can buy from Bunnings etc.

That may be the case Bazza. It is usually chopped much more finely than the baled stuff which is much coarser and which I have often bought for less than $5

I too can get the finely chopped bales wrapped in plastic from Bunnings quite cheaply however I want to use them as Jeremy did in the show. I want to use them as a surround over which I can put shade cloth while the seedlings are young and which will also feed the ground as they break down whilst still maintaining their shape. Haven't been able to manage that with the Bunnings mulch.

Just managed to have a look at that episode Valerie. It is indeed interesting how Jerry uses the bales and I think that what he is doing with the bales is great and certainly worth having a go at it. The issue could be the cost of so many bales. I agree the plastic bagged bales from Bunnings just would not work. I am surprised that you would not be able to get the tied bales around Mapleton or on the coast. I have been buying mine from Tingalpa Landscape Supplies in Brisbane.

Cheers

Mike

Hi Mike, It seems that Brisbane is the place for square bales. Heaps of stockists down there however transport to this area is quite prohibitive. Seems since the Sugar Mill closed the only people still selling sugar cane mulch have those huge round bales or Bunnings. Such is life.

Valerie, you can buy square cane mulch bales from a farm on Nambour-Bli Bli road (on the right hand side, before you get to Bli Bli - he has a sign up). There is also a place on the left of Nambour Bli-Bli Road, just before the Camp Flat Road turnoff, that sometimes sells the stuff. And there is another bloke on the corner of Thomas Road and Yandina-Bli Bli Road (a high set brick house) that sells the bales. Used to be $3.50 a bale but I think it's now up to about $4.50. We find it better value to buy direct from the farmer than from Bunnings or any of the landscape supply businesses. By the way, can anyone point me in the direction of someone who will supply a round bale of mulch (cane or grass) to Pomona/Cooran for a resonable price?

Hi Kathy,

I contacted you this morning regarding to the sugar cane mulch. I am interested of up to 30 bales (dependng to the size of the bale) for my garden.

With the rain we have had lately, it should be good to retain soil moisture before summer comes.

If there are enough people in Melbourne want this mulch then you could deliver to Victoria too.

BTW, my email is jujubeforsale@yahoo.com.au

Many thanks.

sugar cane mulch is great

its not rich in nutrients - so it should be cheap!
but if you want non woody biomass thats got a low weed load
then this is the stuff

dont dig it in
surface mulch only
great deep bedding for the chook run, theyll compost it down for you

Bunnings is a rip off
avoid them at all costs

I would get local round bales of rhodes in 2007, for $25
prob more now but ask around
cut out that middle man, its good for everyone, esp the rural economy

Hi all, apparently sugar cane contains good levels of Triacontanol - a plant growth stimulant which is found in high levels in lucern (alfalfa in USA).

Its cost a lot to transport it to Victoria!

too bad they arent growing switchgrass or Miscanthus down there on waterlogged / bottom land soils, or irrigated with effluent or excess groundwater

i saw some trials up in nth qld using Rhodes grass to strip nutrients from effluent and it was very effective
-a lot better use of it than killing coral reef and seagrasses!

i suppose its only a matter of time before they biofuel thing picks up
just as good if they used if for mulch in horticulture though
particularly the hybrid and sterile miscanthus as it wont bring a weedload

No Helen haven't had any luck with buying them yet. I'm on the northside of Brissy. The local suppliers are too expensive over here so still keen to buy a bulk supply. If we can get them for $5 each I would be keen to still order 50 or 60 bales.

Hi, I am looking for a large quantity of sugar cane bales (100 to 200 bales probably).
Like everyone else here, I find the normal suppliers way too expensive ($9 to $13 a bale)
I would need them delivered as well, obviously.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a cheap supplier near North Brisbane?

Do you have any farmers markets in or around Brisbane?
At Lismore farmers' markets sugar cane bales are $5 . . . a reasonable price I think. At Bunnings down the road they are $13-16.

I irrigate,fertilise,cut,tedd,rake, bale and shed quality grass hay up here and struggle to get $7 a bale. Cane farmers up here simply follow the harvester with a baler and can get $4 on farm for a waste product they used to burn. Have to be making a killing. half their luck I guess

MV says...
I've just spent a good deal of time spreading 9 bales of sugar cane mulch three inches thick over newspapers 6 sheets deep at a property on the Central Coast. This is an on going job and so far I've been spending around $17 a bale, so if anyone can please advise of a cheaper supplier either on the Central Coast or on the lower North Shore, where I work, I'd appreciate it. That amount only covered less than a third of the area I need covered and I want to top up to keep the weeds at bay and encourage the production of soil as we have no top soil to speak of and are working on very heavy clay base.

By the way, I've been buying from Bunnings and prefered the coarser sugar cane mulch Aussie Gold but they don't have that anymore and the finer stuff is a little too fly away for my liking.
Any suggestions?

Thanks John for your advice, however, due to water restrictions on the Central Coast, unfortunately watering is not an option, which is why I'd prefer the coarser stuff.

Hello, did anyone have any luck finding a provider of the large round bales of sugar cane mulch? We are in Gympie. We need about 12 large round bales so I would imagine we would need over 1000 of the small square bales, the extra cost is huge and I also could not stand so much packaging as in the wrapped ones available at Bunnings. Can anyone please tell me where I can get some of the large round bales from in Gympie, preferably delivered? Thanks in advance.

I had my small bales delivered by the following people who were very, very helpful. Don't think they do large bales, but no harm in asking.

I wanted the Aussie Gold because it was coarse, rather than fine cut.

Cost was around $14.00 per bale (no delivery charge) which was about $3 cheaper than Bunnings could offer for the fine cut stuff.

It is expensive,hard to get and often sourced from SEQ in this district and even bagasse is very expensive.Rhodes grass is my preference in bales here and plants seem to respond well but mould can form easily on cane mulch and some grass mulches.Mulched pruned trees from council and private loppers goes for $90- for a 6m3 load here and that is very popular.
It would be a great sideline for enterprising growers with Yasi damaged cane, getting into the mulch business.

$4.00 a bale off the farm at Main St Hervey Bay. They have a massive shed of the stuff, and they deliver for a fee. Not sure of the fee as we have a ute to collect it as we need it, as it is just up the road from us.

If you head up Main St away from the water, go past the Kawungan Shops on the corner of Doolong Rd, go up and over the big hill, and go 1km or so you will see them on the right. High set house and large shed behind. I think you can only buy on Friday and Saturday.

Does anybody know where I can locate about 20 small bales near M'dore, Buderim or Bli-Bli area?
FYI A few years back I had a guy deliver to me one of the larger round bales for $25. He was near Mt Coolum. Where the smiley face bales are, either side of the motorway between Pacific Paradise & Coolum. Not sure if he still has them?

I am chasing large square sugar cane mulch bales the size of a bale of lucerne hay. The price for these is too exxy. Can anyone tell me where I can get mulch bales at a reasonable price, such as $5 per bale? I am happy to collect with my trailer.

I wish you could get cane bales cheap in Cairns but they are rare and expensive.I think all the sugar farmers are millionaires up this way and don't need secondary sources of income.Big W has the cheapest bales here at $12 but they are small and come from brisbane.

Mike, can you get Lucerne hay bales up that way? I get a 240lit wheelie bin full of beautiful fine Lucerne mulch after putting a bale through my 5hp Rover mulcher.
I buy the best racehorse quality bales, so I know it is ALL fresh top quality Lucerne.
Anything less, or cheaper, may not be all Lucerne, especially the garden quality bales, can be 90% weeds and only a couple of $$ cheaper.

John,
Lucerne is rarely available and it is expensive.Rhodes grass is more often available but you really have to travel to surrounding rural areas to get it.

Yes, Lucerne isn't real cheap here either at the moment, $19.50/bale.
I hand mow my hectare lot just to catch the grass clippings which supplements the Lucerne in a way. I'm big on mulching.
Had a mowing guy regularly drop off his clippings but hasn't showed for a while, should put a wanted add on Gumtree.
