Using Azomite in the Garden for Healthier Plants

From Mary's Heirloom Seeds,
  • Give Plants the Vital Minerals They need to Thrive
  • Great soil additive for all plants
Azomite rock dust is a naturally mined volcanic rock composed of over 70 minerals and trace elements that are essential for optimal plant health.  The rock formation in Utah from which Azomite is mined was formed when volcanic ash merged with sea water.  This mixture of volcanic ash ans sea water created a unique source of trace minerals and elements that moist soils are void of.  Just like humans, plants require many minerals to reach peak health and vigor.

Remineralize your soil with Azomite and your plants will thank you and reward you!

Azomite is a simple to use, natural mined mineral product. It requires no mixing or special equipment. it is odorless and won't restrict aeration or water penetration. Unlike some products, Azomite is not a manufactured, chemically prepared fertilizer. It is 100% natural with no additives or fillers.

Azomite trace mineral fertilizer is a complex of naturally occurring minerals which contains essential elements (micro-nutrients) for plant growth. Fertilization with Azomite adds some of the required mineral balance for the growth of common soil flora and fauna vital to overall productivity. Continuous plant propagation and the leaching effects of water may deplete essential minerals and micro-nutrients from soils. Azomite can improve soils that have been depleted of these important minerals and micro nutrients. It can also supplement soil that are inherently deficient of these vital mineral concentrations.

Azomite is a natural source of trace elements for both animals and the soil. It is a hydrated sodium calcium aluminosilicate derived from a natural volcanic mineral deposit.

For gardens, spread ¼ to 2 pounds per 10 ft and spade or rake into the soil. Use 1 teaspoon or 1 cup in watering can quarterly for house plants. In feed rations, 1-2 percent (do not exceed 2 percent) of the feed mixture and mix thoroughly with feed.

A natural source of minerals and trace elements! Azomite is used in gardens as a re-mineralizer for soils and an anti-caking agent in animal feeds. 
Unique Features:
• Grows stronger plants and better tasting vegetables
• Improves weight increase at harvest
• Mined from an ancient mineral deposit in Utah
• Re-mineralizes nutrient-depleted soils
• OMRI Listed for organic use

Great to learn about these garden additives. We're getting back into gardening after taking a break and our first crop of tomatoes should be ready soon. Thanks for the info and for sharing on Merry Monday.
