Using Azomite in the Garden for Healthy Plants

Using Azomite in the Garden for Healthy Plants

From Mary's Heirloom Seeds,
  • Give Plants the Vital Minerals They need to Thrive
  • Great soil additive for all plants
Azomite rock dust is a naturally mined volcanic rock composed of over 70 minerals and trace elements that are essential for optimal plant health.  The rock formation in Utah from which Azomite is mined was formed when volcanic ash merged with sea water.  This mixture of volcanic ash and sea water created a unique source of trace minerals and elements that most soils are void of.  Just like humans, plants require many minerals to reach peak health and vigor.

Remineralize your soil with Azomite and your plants will thank you and reward you!

Azomite is a simple to use, naturally mined mineral product. It requires no mixing or special equipment. It is odorless and won't restrict aeration or water penetration.

Azomite trace mineral soil amendment is a complex of naturally occurring minerals which contains essential elements (micro-nutrients) for plant growth. Fertilization with Azomite adds some of the required mineral balance for the growth of common soil flora and fauna vital to overall productivity. Continuous plant propagation and the leaching effects of water may deplete essential minerals and micro-nutrients from soils. Azomite can improve soils that have been depleted of these important minerals and micro nutrients. It can also supplement soil that are inherently deficient of these vital mineral concentrations.

Important questions answered about Azomite

 Is Azomite Organic?

Micronized AZOMITE Trace Minerals are listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for use in organic production. Many fertilizers receive chemical alterations or go through an intensive manufacturing process. AZOMITE is simply mined, crushed and sold and is 100% natural and organic. Chemically, the term "organic" means that the minerals are bound to a carbon atom. As the minerals in AZOMITE are oxides, not bound to carbon, they are technically considered "inorganic".

What effect does Azomite have on plants??

According to research and customer reports, plants grown with AZOMITE produce more and larger fruits and vegetables per plant resulting in a better tasting food with improved resistance to disease. AZOMITE has shown positive results in a wide variety of plants in the field and in the laboratory. There is evidence that AZOMITE can improves nutritional benefits. 

At Mary's Heirloom Seeds we offer MICRONIZED AZOMITE

What does that mean?
Micronization is the process of reducing the average diameter of a solid material's particles.

In simple terms, MICRONIZED AZOMITE is crushed into a finer powder than regular azomite.  That means that MICRONIZED AZOMITE is easier for plant nutrient uptake and is more water soluable.

For gardens, spread ¼ to 2 pounds per 10 ft and spade or rake into the soil. Use 1 teaspoon - 1 cup in watering can quarterly for house plants. 
If planting in rows: mix into the soil along the rows at rate of 1 lb. per 25 ft. of row. If bed is established, sprinkle around each plant.
For transplanting seedlings, add 1-3 tablespoons per seedling

Application instructions & requirements vary based on your current soil conditions.

Just to recap...

A natural source of minerals and trace elements! Azomite is used in gardens as a re-mineralizer for soils and an anti-caking agent in animal feeds. 

Unique Features:
• Grows stronger plants and better tasting vegetables
• Improves weight increase at harvest
• Mined from an ancient mineral deposit in Utah
• Re-mineralizes nutrient-depleted soils
• OMRI Listed for organic use

Hi. Can you tell me if azonite is a form of phosphorus? Seems as though it would be since it comes from rock. I am hoping that it is. Thanks.

Marie ,

Have you had your soil tested? Some plants prefer slightly acidic soil so it depends on what you plan on planting

Absolutely! Both Tomatoes and peppers are considered “heavy feeders” so it’s important to give them beneficial nutrients

Mary @ Mary's Heirloom Seeds,

I live in the panhandle of Florida. Will azomite be of benifit for my plants? Esepically my tomato and pepper plants ?


I live in northeast washington state. I have acidic clay loom soil. What do i need to add to the soil to change the ph to 7
