Texas Greensand

Regular Price: $17.99

Greensand gets it's name from the presence of Glauconite. This green chemical was deposited by ocean life and is mined in areas that were underwater thousands of years ago. Due to its chemical exchange properties, green sand works as a water softener.

When soil builds up a crust of dissolved metals, that's a sign that the ground underneath is poor for growing plants. Not only does the crust make the soil difficult to work, it also prevents plants from sprouting and is a sign that the soil is poor. This crust comes from positively charged ions that migrate out of the surrounding earth. Greensand prevents dissolved calcium, magnesium, manganese, and iron from getting loose - it keeps them in the ground and accessible to plant's root systems.

Do your plants look weak or sick? The soil they grow in may not be providing the right balance of nutrients. This iron-rich sand helps heal yellowed leaves and strengthen immune systems. Greensand has 30 trace elements and is an effective way to re-balance the soil.

Greensand is an excellent source of iron, potassium, silicate, phosphorous and other essential building blocks. This Texas Greensand helps to bind sandy soils and loosen clay soils to make soils more productive, usable and healthy.

Apply three pounds per 100 square feet at the start of the growing season. To recondition soil, and up to 40 pounds per 100 sq. ft.
