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.

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.

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)

How it works

We want to help you and make your life easier. So we compiled all the instructions on how to use our eco-eze compot. The detailed guide contains a few simple steps to install a Compot, fill a Compot, propagate with a Compot, empty a Compot or move a Compot.

More About Us

When I started this journey in 2009, I found nothing existed commercially, that was reasonably priced and easy to use. There was a homemade system which I also found was not that user-friendly.

Then a friend of mine told me about a homemade method she used.   However, when I tried her method, I found this also didn’t suit my needs, as it too had flaws that I considered where important. It did not keep vermin out, did not have a lockable lid and (to me) looked unsightly in the garden.

Frequently Asked Questions

YES. Absolutely you can fill it with just worm friendly scraps if that is what you prefer, but you will have to separate all your scraps into two piles. I personally don’t have time to fiddle with separating food waste and just toss it all in together. One thing though – you may find the Compot will need emptying more often as the worms try to fill the pot up with soil and their castings. But you will have beautiful compost more regularly to harvest if this is your aim and your Compot will be full of worms.

There is no need to water your Compots specifically. When you water your garden water will naturally go into the Compot through the holes and this is a good thing as it will keep the contents nice and moist.

If, however, you found your pots were really dry and the waste was not decomposing at all then you might want to add some water to soften the waste to help the decomposition process along. Dry contents can occur when you don’t cover your Compots with leaves, or hay etc because the hot sun gets in, in summer, and dries the contents out, dehydrating the waste rather than decomposing it. Much the same as if you were to throw your waste out onto an open lawn without burying it. The same will happen in winter but this time it is the cold air drying out or freezing the contents.

You can fill your Compot with any biodegradable waste from your kitchen. IE: Anything that will break down. EG: Meat, citrus, onions, oil, dairy, eggs, coffee grounds, tea and tea bags, paper towel, old nuts, pasta, bread, cooked food of any sort, wastewater (with or without detergent), milk, cream, yogurt, and anything else you can find in your kitchen that you would normally eat or throw in your council bin, aside from the obvious; glass, plastic, metal etc. So literally everything that you produce in the kitchen that is biodegradable.

Everything will decompose – even doggie doo (un-medicated preferably unless you are putting this waste by a big tree or unused part of your garden). No doggie doo in your veggie patch either.

The time it takes to decompose will just depend on the density of the food, the time of the year, and whether you are relying on all the elements to decompose your waste or just worms.

If you only want to fill your Compot with worm friendly scraps, then you need to leave out most of what I just said you could put in the Compot. It’s up to you how you want to use your Compot and what you feed it. But I find it more efficient to fill it with everything. Just do what is best for you.

I knew about Vicki's compot system about 2 years ago. At first, I was wondering how it works and whether it is a fast and effective composting system. Vicki was very helpful in explaining how it works and offered lots of tips to set up different ways to use the compot.

I purchased two of these compost bins, put them into my flower gardens, started putting all of my scraps into one first and then the other. So now I just rotate using them. I am very glad I purchased two, as it’s working very well for me.

Install once and just top it like any dustbin. A dustbin that handles any waste that will rot. The plants then help themselves to available nutrients and the organic mattee will be reduced in time. Simple, straight forward and self maintaining.
