06 Nov Dundee Flower and Food Festival gives it’s “Seal of Approval”

KEITH BRAND, Winner of Best Gladiolius Exhibit and William Wilson Trophy of Primulinus: Keith proclaiming: “That stuff is magic! I don’t know how it works, but it fair makes things grow. It is just amazing. I used in on my CABBAGES and I could not believe it, they doubled in size in a week. Come and see what it has done for my GLADIOLI! I do a lot of hybridisation and volcanic rock dust improves quality and over wintering of the corns.”
TOM CALDWELL from Elderslie: Tom told us before he tried volcanic rock dust he could never grow PARSNIPS. “I got a couple of bags from you when I came on the stand at the Glasgow Show two years back and I have had a good crop of PARSNIPS each year since!”
GRAEME BUTLER, Owner of Rumbling Bridge Alpine Nursery: Stand holder, Graeme, has specialised in growing Alpine Plants for years. He says: “In some cases volcanic rock dust was a problem because the plants were growing too fast – they are meant to be Alpine! I found however if I added a small amount to the NEW ZEALAND DAISY, as a top dressing, it really helped get this tricky Alpine established.
KEITH POOLE, Head Gardener, Fife Estate: After the Show, Keith kindly sent photos to show his 2 year results. “Not so much in first year, but by Years 2 and 3, WOW! This CABBAGE was 9.5lbs and the ROSES where we applied the volcanic rock dust excelled whilst those we left without had a lot of Tar Spot, were spindly & had few flowers.”
Last but not least John Mitchell, Head Gardener of the 5 Star Fairmont, St Andrews told us he tried volcanic rock dust on their LAVENDER. The results were spectacular and he also means to take in a good supply of “the magic!”
