Greensand (7 LB JUG)



Greensand fertilizer is a rich source of glauconite, which is high in iron, potassium, and magnesium.
Addition of greensand to sandy soils enhances the ability of the soil to store exchangeable nutrients such as calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), potassium (K), and micronutrients.

Greensand is a naturally occurring iron-potassium silicate, also called glauconite. It has the consistency of sand but is able to absorb ten times more moisture, making it an exceptional soil conditioner and helps to loosen heavy clay soil. Greensand contains potassium, iron, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus plus as many as 30 other trace minerals. For many years, organic growers have praised the virtues of Greensand without really knowing how or why it has improved their crops. One explanation is through mineralization. Studies have shown that mineralizing soil can improve the taste, color, nutritional value and health of various plants as well as the overall health of the soil!

Applications vary between 1-2 pounds for 100 square feet of garden soil, depending on soil conditions and intended use. Work into soil and water thoroughly.
