Slow-Release grade of Azomite volcanic minerals with particle sizes ranging from 4 to 200 mesh. Ideal for blending with other fertilizer materials and amendments as a trace mineral resource to help meet complete plant nutritional needs. An economical way to fortify and re-mineralize soils, composts, and potting mediums.
Azomite, the “A to Z Of Minerals Including Trace Elements," is a natural trace mineral product formed from the dust of an ancient volcano in central Utah. AZOMITE can improve plant and root system growth, crop yields, quality and flavors as well as re-mineralize nutrient depleted soils. This powder grade is ideal for blending with other fertilizer materials or amendments as a trace mineral resource to help meet plant nutritional needs. It can be applied directly or in combination with composts, fertilizers, manures or soil inoculants.

1.5 cups ≈ 1 lb; ¼ cup ≈ 2.5 oz; 1 tbsp ≈ 0.5 oz
Vegetable Gardens & Flower Beds: To prepare new gardens, apply 1-2 lbs per 10 square feet and thoroughly mix into the top 3” of garden soil in spring or fall. For new transplants, add 1-2 tsp per hole, mix into soil and water in well.
Containers: For new plantings, add 1-2 tbsp per gallon of soil and mix thoroughly OR add 0.5-1 lb per cubic yard. For established plants, lightly mix 1-2 tsp per gallon into the soil surface every other month during the
Trees, Shrubs & Vines: Spread 1 lb per 2" of trunk diameter around the base outwards to the drip line, mix into soil surface and water in well. For grapes, apply ½-1 lb around each plant and thoroughly mix into soil. For new trees, prepare transplant hole and mix 4-8 oz with the backfill soil. Use the amended soil to fill in around the new tree and water in well.
WHAT IS "N-P-K"?
NITROGEN (N) - Nitrogen is necessary for lush, green, leafy growth. An excess, however, will
promote vegetative growth at the expense of fruit or flowers. Nitrogen is generally applied at higher
concentrations in early growth stages. Use Down To Earth Bat Guano, Blood Meal or Feather Meal.
PHOSPHORUS (P) - Phosphorus will promote big, bright blooms and enhanced fruit production.
Phosphorus is essential for fruiting, flowering, strong root growth and quality seed development.
Use Down To Earth Fish Bone Meal or Seabird Guano.
POTASSIUM (K) - Potassium, or Potash, helps produce strong sturdy plants and quality fruit.
Potassium naturally increases a plants resistance to all types of stress and is vital for cell growth
and carbohydrate metabolism. Use Down To Earth Kelp Meal or Langbeinite.
