Glacial Rock Dust
Natural mineral product containing a broad spectrum of minerals in a form readily available to soil microorganisms. It improves soil structure, moisture holding properties, nutrient availability, and bacterial action. It increases phosphorus availability and corrects mineral imbalances in the soil.

How much to use:
Gardens, landscape, and lawns – 22lbs per 100sq. ft. Gently dig into soil surface up at least once a year.
We recommend 10lbs per square yard of new soil.
Potted plants - ½ cup per gallon of soil
Top dressing – 4 tablespoons per gallon of soil once per month
Composting: Mix liberally in pile or bin for microbial enhancer during processing.

 

Worm Castings
Unprocessed natural manure (don't worry, it's odorless!) of African Night Crawler earthworms. High in beneficial bacteria, organic matter, humus, nitrate nitrogen, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium in an easily absorbable form.

Worm castings provides aeration and moisture-retaining properties. Great for use in a heavy loam soil (Saline) as when combined with the Glacial Rock Dust, it will bread down the clay and create a looser and better environment that will attract worms.

How much to use:
Gardens and landscape – ½ gallon per10sq. ft. Gently dig into soil surface once a month.
Potted plants – use up to 25% worm castings
Top dressing – 4 tablespoons per gallon of soil once per month

 

Bat Guano 0-7-0
Produced by fruit eating bats in the Philippines. (don't worry its odorless!) It increases size and quantity of blooms in flowering plants. It enhances production and flavor in tomatoes and other vegetables.

How much to use:
Gardens, landscape, and lawns – 2.2lbs per 100sq. ft. Gently dig into soil surface once a month.
Potted plants – 3 tablespoons per gallon of soil
Top dressing – 1 tablespoon per gallon of soil once per month
