    Comments about Greensand, 5 Lbs.:

    Green Sand is a wonderful product. It is an organic product mined out of the hills of Georgia or Texas, it has some elements that plants need like magnesium and iron and other trace elements but does not have a lot of nitrogen. It is a slow releasing fertilizer and doesn't burn plants. One side effect is that it loosens clay soils
    It's wonderful on roses and I put it in the soil around my tomatoes. I highly recommend it.
    I am glad to find it in 5lb bags, my feed and seed store only carries it in 30 lb bags which is way too heavy for me to lift.

            I am primarily using this product to help restore my lawn. I have not used it long enough to give a good review - need more time - but things are growing & not dying.

              We needed a boost in iron in our sandy clay soil. The greensand did the trick, in less than a week the plants started to green up and look healthier. It was easy to apply and fast acting. I would recommend it for any garden or plant that needs iron.

                Comments about Greensand, 5 Lbs.:

                I am using greensand in my raised beds. I purchased it primarily for my container potatoes. I was looking for a product low in nitrogen to increase potato yield. I'm still mid season, but the potatoes planted with greensand are flowering well, and much earlier than last year's, and the potatoes without are not.

                  We had our garden soil tested this spring and found it to be low in potassium. After doing some research, the greensand sounded like the best way to go for potassium without adding any more phosphorus, which our soil has plenty of. I used a spreader and then raked it into the top couple inches, so it was easy to apply. Now I am waiting to see how the garden grows! I will be buying more for my flower beds if the veggies do well.

                    I add this to my soil mix at the beginning of the planting season. My dahlias love it! They explode with blooms and color.
