I was delighted to receive the two half tonne bags of REMIN VOLCANIC ROCK DUST at Cullerne Garden at The Findhorn Foundation this autumn.

The Garden is over 30 years old and the original “soil” was dune sand that has been built up over the years by compost made on site.   For at least the last 5 years volcanic rock dust has been added to the Cullerne Garden compost to ensure the essential minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and trace elements are made available in the soil in the gardens and in the poly tunnel.

As an agronomist by profession, I suspected there was a deficiency last year in the tomatoes growing in one of the poly tunnels, so I sent a couple of soil samples from the fields and the tunnel, to a laboratory in England.  I have interpreted over a hundred soil samples in Australia, and I was surprised to see the results showed the remineralised soil at Cullerne Garden is one of the best I have seen, with a well-balanced and adequate level of all major minerals, nutrients and trace elements.

REMIN volcanic rock dust that was bought this autumn is available in a very convenient range of pack sizes from bulk down to 450g sachets and it was delivered promptly and efficiently. I am now confident Cullerne Garden will continue to maintain the excellent results achieved to date.

REMIN has a very informative website www.reminscotland.com which I found very useful to visit.
