Has anyone here ever tried Azomite? It seems it is a great additive to put minerals back into the soil. It is quite expensive and not many places carry it. Here is the website Shrug!

I've wanted to use it in my raised beds (and as a mineral supplement for my cattle) for a long time, but the price is too high and the availability is hard to come by. My local feed stores had never heard of it and wouldn't order it for me.

If you could get it for a reasonable price, it certainly would be worthwhile.

I asked a local rock quarry manager if he had ever heard of it before and he said no. I think I might talk to my local nurseries about it. If anything I might buy a pallet of it, have it shipped to my work and try to sell the excess. The closest retailer of it to me is 4 hours away so I wont be going there! Smiling Grumbling

Have you tried hydroponic places? One near me, Worm's Way, carries it.

That's the only place I've ever seen it.
