Glacial rock dust is a natural mineral product mined from glacial deposits containing crushed rocks from thousands of years of glacial action. Rock dust contains a broad range of trace minerals essential to the soil food web, but often depleted in soils. Glacial rock dust helps restore these mineral imbalances, providing silicate minerals in an accessible form for soil microbes to create healthy soil.
Use Glacial rock dust as a soil amendment in vegetable gardens, flower beds, containers, on lawns, and around trees. It improves soil structure, moisture retention, nutrient availability, microbial action and also raises pH in acidic soils.
