Apply Angus Rock Dust as soon as possible. The sooner it is applied, the sooner it begins to benefit your soil and plants. After the first application further annual applications in the autumn are recommended.

Soil based applications

For existing trees, shrubs, herbaceous borders, bulbs, fruit trees & bushes:

  • 1st application now @ 2kg/m2 [8 tonne/acre or 20 tonne/ha.]
  • Annual applications in autumn/winter @ 500g/m2 [2 tonne/acre or 5 tonne/ha.]

Best applied to soil surface and covered with organic mulch [VermiCompost], nature will take the rock dust and its goodness to the root zone
