Used this in conjunction with blood meal, rock phosphate and Azomite as a dressing for the tired garden soil. Mix a cup each of the blood, green sand and rock phosphate with a tablespoon of the Azomite and mix together. Pour mixture over the soil, add a bag of compost and mix well. This will treat 40 quarts of dirt. No more having to spend money for new garden soil. Added benefit - this is all organic.

I decided to make soil blocks for this first time this year to germinate vegetable seeds. Greensand was one of the ingredients, and to be honest I had never heard of it. I went to 4 local stores in search of it, but nobody carried it. I was very happy to be able to order it on Amazon and have it arrive two days later. I mixed up my soil block recipe, and within 5 days had over 100 tomato seedlings popping up. My germination rate was nearly 100%! You can bet I'll be keeping greensand in my soil block recipe!

This is the second year I have used Green Sand after reading about it on Tomato Dirt. Tomatoes love this stuff! Great soil conditioner!

Along with blood meal and bone meal, I opted to use this product for potassium this year to avoid using wood ash again, as too much wood ash can raise the pH and cause nutrient lock. It's a bit too early to tell, but tomatoes and squashes are looking very healthy so far and have blooms on them already.

This is a good supplement for strengthening cell walls and bloom color. You can use it along with kelp meal and worm castings and a few other things to rejuvenate used potting soil, which is expensive.

I bought this green sand on a recommendation of an instructional on how to plant potted plants. I'm not quite sure what the composition is in this formula, but the plants I used this green sand on grew twice as large as the ones that got potted without Seriously, I understand that this is a natural product rich in minerals which is mined from the sea floor. We have a heavy clay soil, so I also used it in my flower gardens. I like that it is an organic product. It is definitely worth the cost.

This is an amazing product for not only breaking up hard clay, cement-like soil, but providing much-needed food and nutrients for your growing plants. Your plants will grow super fast, and you'll notice a lot more earthworm activity in the soil. You'll also use less water when watering your plants, because the water will be able to sink into the soil, instead of just running off.

I bought a house with a Lisbon lemon tree last year, which wasn't really cared for by the previous owners. There were many tree suckers, and it had a lot of dead branches and leaves on the bottom portion of the tree canopy, and growing wildly at the top due to bad pruning. After getting the tree professionally pruned, I bought citrus fertilizer from a home improvement store thinking that's all it needed. But after a year of very little improvement, besides it growing into a better shape, I decided to pay more attention to it. (I wanted to enjoy lemons!)

It seemed dehydrated to me, because the branches were so brittle, and the leaves lacked color. When I watered it, I noticed that the water would run off. (The tree is on a very slight hill.) My parents criticized that the soil was like cement, and that it was too compacted and rock-hard for the water to be able to sink in.

After doing some research, I was planning to use garden gypsum to break up the soil, but because I wanted the tree to improve as well, I went with this product instead. I applied 1 cup of greensand around the base of the tree, and 1 foot past the drip line of the tree. After a couple of days of rain, I decided to test the soil if I can till it. I was amazed at how fast it was able to soften up the soil. I was able to gently till in some organic chicken manure and Epsom salt.
