Remin Volcanic Rock Dust contains the following naturally occurring nutrients:
I used this product last year and it seems to help a lot with my clay soil - add a bit of Biochar at the same time and the results have been brilliant. I add a handful to my tomato pots and peppers too - any spent compost goes back onto the garden and so does the remaining minerals. My tomatoes didn't seem to suffer with magnesium deficiency either. Whether that's luck or the soil improvers I don't know, but I did have a very good crop last year. Will have to wait until later to find out if it happens again! Fingers crossed!
This will give the garden a different range of minerals instead of the other natural products which am sure will enhance the health benefits of fruit and veg and hopefully the quality
I have read a lot about rock dust and its minerals but not had the chance to use it till now. I have spread it around my allotment so I will see in the next few months how much difference it wil make to my strawberries and in my hot house tunnels.

Application to Wormeries
Sprinkle small handful per 30cm2 (1ft2) onto surface of your wormery every month. Try a small area with this amount and see the worms congregate.

What The Press Say
March's Wish List
This entirely natural plant supplement can easily be added to veg beds. Seer Rockdust is a finely ground and freshly crushed volcanic rock that's said to have plenty of nutritional benefits. The team has been sent plenty of positive comments by veg-growers. Customers experienced great crops of runner beans, bigger alliums with less white rot and sweetcorn that was twice the usual size. It didn't stop there, with reports of cauliflowers avoiding stem rot for the first time, leeks with great root systems and large, healthy brassicas.
Encourage Your Garden's Worms
We added the Rockdust and compost to the soil in the autumn and by the middle of last year each spadeful of soil has a worm in it. Now we are digging up our fabulous parsnips and cabbages.
