Basalt 500g

Basalt is a finely ground volcanic basalt containing a huge number of slow release micro-nutrients. It is the perfect addition to living soils and composts where microbial life can maximise the gentle release of these nutrients. Commercial organic growers have long since realised the benefits of applying volcanic rock dusts to their soils to improve nutrient uptake by plants, and now it’s available in a convenient form for the home gardener.



Key benefits of using Basalt in your soil are:
 Nutrient releases stay within reach of plant roots and are not rapidly leached.
 A slow release of over 50 nutrients and trace elements.
 Large applications can raise pH of acidic soils which improves mineral uptake by plants.
 Improves wettability of sandy soils.
 Improves Cation Exchange Capacity of sandy soils.
 An excellent addition to compost bins.
 Improves soil physical conditions.
 Benefits earthworm populations.
 Improves paramagnetism.
 A perfect accompaniment to organic fertilisers.
 Potential to improve root systems.
 Potential to positively influence soil bacterial and fungi.
 Can be used safely on native plants.
 Improves plant cell strength; reducing pest and disease attack
