Rocky ROCK DUST
Rocky Rock Dust is a finely ground volcanic basalt containing a huge number of slow release micro-nutrients. It is the perfect addition to living soils and composts where microbial life can maximise the gentle release of these nutrients.
Commercial organic growers have long since realised the benefits of applying volcanic rock dusts to their soils to improve nutrient uptake by plants, and now it’s available in a convenient form for the home gardener.

Nutrient releases stay within reach of plant roots and are not rapidly leached.
