DOLOMITE is an alkaline fertiliser comprised of calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate salts (c. 10.4 pH) which is useful for plants in soils that are low in those minerals and also to balance the pH in media which is too acidic such as some soils, worm farms, composts, manures, etc.
Many Australian soils are low in magnesium and obtaining it through leafy green vegetables is crucial to good health, so make sure you are keeping the levels up in home gardening, worm farming and composting areas.
The 25kg bag comes bagged by the manufacturer in Mudgee NSW and is a superfine dust which is readily absorbed in soils. It is also available in 1kg and 3kg packaged in paper bags.
Safety – use a mask when applying larger quantities or in unventilated conditions.
Recommended – 20L bucket with lid or 5L bucket with lid (see Recycling Products section) to keep the material dry over a lengthy period.
