Mineral Rock Dust 1kg

$8.00

Inclusions:

1 x Mineral Rock Dust 1kg
2 x Plastic Bags for safe transport
1 x Instructions

 

Mineral Rock Dust 1kg is a carefully blended mix of material from rocks like Basalt Gypsum Lignite & Rock Phosphate that add trace elements to your soil.  One kilogram of Mineral Rock Dust is great to buy as a sample to test on your garden or in a potted plant.  Preferably test it against the same plant or vegetable growing in a different place without Mineral Rock Dust added.  This way you can see the difference in the growth and health of the plants.

Spread 1kg of Mineral Rock Dust per linear meter and dig into the soil
2 kg per square meter
Mix 50 /50 with composted soil depending on your soil
Or make up a mixture with potting mix using only 10% of Mineral Rock Dust per quantity of potting mix

It is great around Australia native plants which can be sensitive to phosphorus as they have an extra root system to take up all available phosphorous in the soil.  Mineral Rock Dust does not contain everything you need to grow your plants and sometimes it is safer to use an all-around Soil Conditioner for your garden that has Rock Dust in it, as well as many more beneficial elements blended in a special way to supplement all plants.

Mineral Rocks

Mineral Rock Dust is not just crushed rock as most people think but rather a carefully blended mix of minerals such as Basalt, Gypsum, Lignite & Rock Phosphate.   There can be up to 100 different minerals present.  Most are as exceedingly small amounts of trace elements and their use will create a reserve of these trace elements.

The common minerals supplied by Rock Minerals are Potassium, Calcium, & Magnesium.  But this depends on the natural mix of the rocks that they are derived from & mixed with to form the commercial product.   They may be in small amounts, but trace elements need to be in small amounts otherwise they become toxic to plants even though they are essential to plant (& human) health.

Some trace elements are:

• Manganese (Mn) It helps in the formation of chlorophyll
• Iron (Fe) Important in forming chlorophyll
• Boron (B) influential in the absorption of calcium
• Molybdenum (Mo) Important in Nitrogen Fixation (especially in Legumes)

This is a nice amount to test its use in your garden or potting mix.
Ordering more than 1kg is probably not cost effective unless you order a bucket or a box of Mineral Rock Dust

POSTAGE COSTS:

The updated website and shopping cart should automatically calculate any variations of products you add to your order and offer you the three cheapest options (one with signature required) so you can choose which option you prefer.  However we can only post buckets and boxes by courier as I currently find them too difficult to take to the post office to post with Australia Post.

If for any reason you feel the postage to your area is excessive (and sometimes it is too remote areas) please email us  so we can work something out for you.  The updated website will now give you Australia Post and courier costs, but this still may be excessive.   So, contact us to see how we can help.

Please call us (0467 006 529 / (07) 3358 3716) for a correct quote or continue to payment options.  We will refund you any postage charges over and above what the real cost is when we calculate and book your order.

If you get no satisfaction with the post, then please call us or email us and see if we can’t help you get a better deal.
