Enjoy a greener, fuller yard, healthier and tastier fruits & vegetables, and more vibrant flowers naturally. No chemicals, no sprays – just organic minerals doing their thing. It’s also safe around children and pets, will not burn leaves or harm plants, and can be handled without gloves!
Depending on the current condition of the soil, application amounts and frequencies may be adjusted. Typically two applications per year are all that are necessary. For general application, follow the guidelines below.
Gardens, House Plants, and Smaller Applications
One 5 lb. bag will cover approximately 400 sq feet, a 20’ x 20’ garden plot.
Spread 1 tsp naturesPerfect per square foot of soil.Gently work in, being careful not to damage the roots. If applying while planting, you can sprinkle directly onto seeds. Continue normal watering. Dry application is not recommended on windy days!
Mix 1⁄2 cup naturesPerfect per 1 gallon of water in a watering can, or bucket. Pour at the base of plants, or sprinkle over leafy plants.
Farms and Larger Applications
For general crops we recommend applying 500 lbs per acre. For potatoes we recommend 1⁄2 ton per acre. NaturesPerfect can be mixed with your fertilizer or seed mixture and tilled or broadcasted into your crops.
Keep Insects in Natural Balance in your Garden
For short-term rescue, very fine dust sprayed directly on plantsand trees has been shown in research in Germany to deter insect infestations very effectively. Trails of rock dust around the garden help keep slugs out. And healthy remineralized plants will not be plagued by insect infestations in the future as they become healthier and more insect resistant.
Composting with Rock Dust
Combining gravel dust with organic materials in compost is a great way to solve application problems and speed up the process. Don’t forget a handful of soil to inoculate with organisms. Gravel dust improves aeration and structure and therefore prevents rotting. Gravel dust is assimilated even more quickly in compost that in poor soils.
Compost and gravel dust are a symbiotic combination: the compost provides and excellent medium for the “microorganism population explosion” promoted by the dust, and the gravel dust will not only help create more organic matter, but will also help hold it in place, reduce odors and conserve it.
Add 2 – 20 lbs. of rock dust per cubic yard of compost, if one is doing pile or windrow composting.
