06 Nov POT PALM TREE and an OLD ROSE BUSH burst into life with VOLCANIC ROCK DUST
We run a gardening service company and started using volcanic rock dust in 2006. Here are just two examples of why we think it has an important role to play in good gardening:
POT PALM TREE: My husband came home with a small palm in a 4” pot. It struggled away for 4 or 5 years never growing more than one leaf a year. Then last year I gave it a handful of Volcanic rock dust and thought “Well let that work its wonders or you are out.” I am happy to say our now healthy palm tree really got the message and has flourished ever since! In the last year it has gained 4 healthy leaves – and it even put one of these on over the winter period which is unusual.
OLD ROSE BUSH: This is in a garden belonging to Stan. A single rose was looking dried up with one leaf sticking out at right angles so we decided, once again as a last chance, to give it a go with volcanic rock dust. The first thing we knew it started throwing out healthy shoots from the root area and since then it has never looked back. It soon flourished into the vigorous climbing rose it was always meant to be. Yes, we did add compost and manure – but it had always had that.
Keep up the good work!
