Greensand is mined from ancient seashore deposits of the mineral glauconite. Greensand is an organic source of slow-release potassium (potash) and many essential trace minerals. You can use Greensand as a long-term soil amendment for your vegetables, fruits, herbs, lawns, ornamental plants and all types of trees or shrubs.
Greensand can absorb up to one-third its weight in water, so it regulates and improves the moisture holding capacity of garden soils and potting mixes. It can be used to loosen heavy clay soils or bind sandy soils. It also boosts microbial activity in soil.
Ingredients: 100% organic greensand. Registered for use in organic agriculture.
Available in 6 lb. box.
Suggested Application Rates:
Vegetable gardens & flower beds: Apply 5-10 lbs. per 100 square feet and thoroughly mix into soil.

Trees & Shrubs: Use 1 -2 lbs. per 1 inch of truck diameter. Work into soil surface around the base and outward to the drip line and water in well. For transplants, add the same amount to newly dug hole, backfill and water.
