What will Rock Dust Do for your Garden?

Applying rock dust is often called “remineralization” which actually revitalizes the soil by mimicking the process of glaciiation.

Rock Dust:
Provides a slow release of trace minerals.   Increases microorganism growth,  Builds more soil.  Increases nutrition in plants and crops.  Cuts the need for chemical fertilizers,  Increases water retention in the soil,
Increases pest resistance,  Increases crop yield.  Reports of increased winter hardiness

Every garden can benefit from adding Rock Dust!

We carry a great variety of Rock Dust and recommend using a mixture of all to give you the full buffet of all minerals for your soil


CALPHOS Rock Phosphate

0-3-0

Calphos Soft Rock Phosphate Powder

(Slow releasing granulated phosphate containing

20% total phosphoric acid and 20% calcium; to help increase and balance soil PH; to feed soil microbes and facilitate nitrogen metabolism.)

By offering growing plants a constant, slow-leachable source of

phosphorus and calcium that is capable of absorbing its

own weight in moisture, Calphos  also stimulates strong root formation, 

and encourages earthworms and soil bacteria.

Since phosphorus is lacking in most soils,
additional applications are a must for maximum results.






AZOMITE


AZOMITE® Minerals for Land and Soil

AZOMITE® trace minerals have been reported to improve root systems,

yields and general plant vigor in a variety of applications; from field crops and  orchards to lawn and garden use. AZOMITE® helps remineralize

nutrient-depleted soils. 100% naturally derived, AZOMITE® is OMRI Listed  for use in organic production and farming.

"Scientists have long recognized that adequately nourished plants and animals
are resistant to infectious diseases. There is a growing recognition that healthy plants may effectively resist insects. There is speculation that the nutrient-dense sap of healthy plants provides protection against freeze damage. Based on research studies, reporting higher trace element levels, we believe your plants will show trace element and nutrient improvement with AZOMITE® use."





CASCADE MINERALS

FEED YOUR SOIL & IT WILL FEED YOUR PLANTS

In soil that is properly mineralized, plants don’t have to work nearly as hard to survive. Rich in micronutrients like calcium, iron, magnesium and manganese, volcanic basalt helps increase root growth and boost crop yields. Basalt also contains soluble silicon that contributes to the strength of cell walls and makes crops more resistant to pests and disease. It also strengthens stems, helping plants stand tall and capture more light to maximize photosynthesis.
Not surprisingly, vibrant, healthy plants grown in remineralized soil have

greater Brix levels than plants that are nutrient deficient. As a measure of

dissolved plant sugar and nutrients, higher Brix levels indicate balanced and healthy growing conditions. Healthier plants also produce more fragrant flowers with greater concentrations of essential oils and better-tasting,

more nutritious fruits and vegetables.

GUARANTEED ANALYSIS
Available Nutrients
Calcium (Ca) 1.0%, Magnesium (Mg) 0.5%, Iron (Fe) 4.0%, Manganese (Mn) 0.05%
Calcium (CA) & Magnesium (Mg) regulate soil cation exchange capacity

which determines the availability of many other nutrients in the soil.
Magnesium (Mg) is the central atom in chlorophyll. Mg deficiencies frequently

occur and are easily corrected with Cascade Minerals.
Iron (Fe) is a catalyst to chlorophyll formation. Many synthetic Fe fertilizers

are ineffective because the Fe converts rapidly to unavailable forms.

The Fe in Cascade Minerals is stable in the soil, even on calcareous soils.

Cascade Minerals steadily supplies Fe to plants as they need it.
Manganese (Mn) accelerates germination and maturity, while increasing the

availability of phosphorus (P) and Ca.

Also Contains Beneficial Plant Substances: 35% Silicon Dioxide (SiO2)

Additional Minerals and Trace Elements to help make plants strong:

Silicon (Si) is the major element affecting the strength of plant cell walls.
Copper (Cu) is necessary to chlorophyll formation.
Zinc (Zn) is essential for promoting certain metabolic reactions; deficiencies are common.
Boron (B) is essential for pollination and seed formation; deficiencies are common.
Aluminum (Al) is an important element for producing blue pigments in flowers.

Vegetable Gardens-5 to 10 lbs of  Cascade Minerals

per 100 square feet (10x10.) Rake or lightly till minerals into soil. 

Trees and Shrubs-1 cup of Cascade Minerals per 1 inch of trunk diameter.

Spread evenly over rooting area. Rake or lightly till minerals into soil if

possible, otherwise water in thoroughly.


Compost:  Mix 2 cups of Cascade Minerals
Remineralizing Soil Booster per cubic foot.

PACIFIC PEARL

OYSTER SHELL FLOUR

Natures best calcium

Oyster Shellprovides a long-lasting,

steady release of nutrients to help regulate pH levels, improve fertilizer uptake, promote healthy cellular structure

and enhance soil tilth.

Oyster Shell is also helpful in creating more active

habitats for soil microbes in compost piles and worm bins.

(36% Calcium; 92% Calcium Carbonate equivalent.

Faster acting, superior to Ag Lime;

derived from finely ground oyster shell)






GLACIAL ROCK DUST

GAIA GREEN

FEED YOUR SOIL & IT WILL FEED YOUR PLANTS


Natural Mineral Product: Glacial Rock Dust is a natural mineral product,

which is produced over many thousands of years by piedmont glacial action. Piedmont glaciers are traveling glaciers which moved north to south

during the last ice age. As the glacier traveled it picked up different types

of rock containing a full range of natural minerals and trace elements. At the end of the ice age the glacier receded leaving behind deposits of “glacial moraine”. These deposits are mined, dried, and screened for agricultural

and horticultural re-mineralization.

Gaia Green Glacial Rock Dust can replace key elements that have been depleted from the soil over the years, replacing these missing minerals in

a form readily used by soil microbes to create healthy soil.

Our Glacial Rock Dust lets the soil re-create the colloids (minerals and humus) which are needed to improve soil structure, moisture holding properties, nutrient availability and bacterial action. When the correct balance is

achieved, organic matter is turned into humus and the soil becomes a

favorable environment for a host of beneficial molds, fungi, bacteria and earthworms. When this happens, the living soil becomes a buffer to the

many variables gardeners must contend with.

Gaia Green Glacial Rock Dust is high in natural silica and provides an

excellent source of calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium, and trace elements and micronutrients. It can also increase moisture-holding

properties in the soil, improve the cation exchange capacity, and

improve soil structure and drainage.
