2 Lbs of Azomite - OMRI Organic Trace Mineral Soil Additive Fertilizer - Handy Pantry Brand - 67 Trace Minerals: Selenium, Vanadium, Chromium
A to Z Minerals- A Complete Organic Fertilizer A Source of Minerals & Trace Elements Azomite is the name of a special rock in Utah. Early this century geological prospector Rollin Anderson found deposits of montmorillonite clay in a valley south of Salt Lake City. U.S. Bureau of Mines analysis showed the clay is similar to Chilean/Peruvian caliche rocks from which much of the world's nitrate was mined. Anderson ground montmorillonite as fine as possible, then put it in his garden. Results were amazing and nearly immediate. Minerals in Azomite are necessary to optimal metabolism in living things. Ground to dust, minerals are small enough to pass through cell walls of organisms.

Excellent Product! Highly RecommendedNov 13, 2011
I was hesitant to order this product because my tomatoes were growing okay, and I thought that was about as good as they could grow, but I was amazed at the immediate results I got when I added Azomite to the soil. When I added only one tablespoon of Asomite mixed with 2 gallons of water, I could hardly believe my eyes when I checked my tomatoes after work the very next day. They seemed to have jumped up about five inches overnight! Honestly, I could hardly believe it. I am a rank amature in the gardening department, but I didn't have to be a pro to see that this product works. I'll never be caught without it again.

Great StuffSep 24, 2013
By Mark H. Thompson
I ordered this product through Amazon - read the reviews but couldn't believe what they were saying how good it was. Having now used it - it's amazing. Tomatoes went 'crazy' - also helped the brussels sprouts, flowers, etc. Only problem was it came in a very expensive ($7.00) 2 pound package. I then ordered a 44 pound bag for less than a dollar a pound from another site.
Amazon rarely gets beaten in price - this time they got hammered by other sites. I'd recommend buying the first two pound package from Amazon and see the results. If it's as good as the reviewers (and myself) say, I'd suggest ordering a larger bag from another site (or from a local distributor).
Hoping the review helps you out.

Always Add Azomite To Your Soil Mixture!Nov 16, 2010
By Doc Campbell
Azomite is an excellent addition to your soil or soil-less mixture. It should be a staple in your line-up. It can keep deficiencies at bay and on those perfect runs it can add weight, flavor, resin, etc. Azomite has been included in all my soil runs since the first time I used it, I am that impressed with the results.

Works for WheatgrassMar 29, 2010
I don't think my method for growing cereal grass can be considered strictly hydroponic but it IS soil-free, i.e., I use a combination of Hoffman vermiculite and Hoffman Canadian sphagnum moss (it's chemical-free--you want to watch for that if you're planning to consume what you grow). I've also been using SeaStart kelp fertilizer which does a great job but given that I'm not using soil and rely on supplemental lighting, I wanted to try taking fertilizing up a notch. I use Handy Pantry grain and ran across AZOMITE (sorry, I don't have a small caps font) on their Web site. I liked what I read and on that basis, decided to give it a shot.
My growing trays are smaller than standard flats so I mix just a tablespoon of AZOMITE with my dry planting medium, after which I wet it down with my kelp solution (to which I now add 5 drops/pint of Nutri-Biotic Maximum GSE to help control mold). And it really did provide a boost--I'm growing gorgeous, healthy grass that's (I imagine) as full of juice as grass can be (which admittedly isn't much--it's grass, after all) and that's ready for harvest just over a week after I first soak the seeds for pre-sprouting.
My suggestion is that if you're looking for a second crop from grass that has already been cut, give it a watering containing a second dose of AZOMITE as the initial tablespoon is pretty much utilized by the first crop. Don't be afraid to combine AZOMITE with another safe, organic fertilizer such as SeaStart--they complement each other very nicely.
Wheatgrass is something of a pain to cultivate at home and AZOMITE has really contributed to my own success, in spite of my brown thumb. I can only imagine that it works equally well, if not better, on plants that aren't as fussy.

An Essential Safety Tip!Feb 07, 2012
By Pre-Paid Premium Shipping
I realize that the intended purpose of Azomite is as a plant fertilizer but that some people use it as a nutritional supplement. I did myself for a while while also using it to grow wheatgrass. I have encountered a problem by storing it in a shut closed cabinet that also contained fabric softener sheets (e.g,, Bounce sheets). The scent of the sheets over time somehow made it's way through two fairly thick paper bags and also a thin vegetable plastic bag (knotted closed to lock out air), and this gave it the taste of the fabric sheets. I tried to deal with it, but I eventually threw away two 3 pound bags after realizing what had happened.
I'm letting everyone know of this (in online reviews, blogs, etc) so that they can possibly share it with others who might use it for the same purpose! You might pass it along to anyone else you know who uses it in the same way...to be careful where they store it. Storing it next to anything that have a strong smell could mean that the Azomite will absorb that even through a thin plastic. (The thicker plastic bag it comes in here may be enough to keep the scent from being absorbed...I'm not sure.)
Also, if it can absorb the scent of fabric sheets, I'd guess it can absorb other things in the air, so be careful not to leave it near other volatile fumes (e.g., ammonia, gas for your lawnmower). You definitely don't want your Azomite absorbing harsh chemicals, since eventually it will be coming in direct contact with something you might eat.
