    Comments about Greensand, 5 Lbs.:

    I am such an admirer and inexperienced gardener when it is time to plant roses. My experience with quick starters,etc. made me cautious of burning my rose bushes,but this green sand seems to be working great. We also planted grass in shaded areas that is doing well.

      I grow my vegetables in large containers on my roof deck. They seriously appreciate the addition of a bit of greensand (doesn't take a lot!) every spring. Thanks for providing this resource.

        Comments about Greensand, 5 Lbs.:

        I have used this product for several years. It takes time to notice the effects, but like many organic gardening practices, the effects are longer lasting. This year I am using this product as an addition to my new deep mulch garden that utilizes my native soil. It is sandy loam and fairly nutrient poor, and this helps. I am growing vegetables, flowers and herbs; it remains to be seen what will do well and what won't, but my early season vegetables are growing well so far.

              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.
