GLacial Rock dust

Could be very promising for those of us using the MTS method.IF not replace the work altogether..IT sounds as if this is what we are trying to do..

I haven't tried it, nor do I intend to, but I have used river silt, which I dug up from a bank of silt along the American River. That worked very well for me under a cap of Soilmaster Select. In fact I thought it was the most effective substrate I tried. Silt is rock dust, so I see no reason to buy it.

I dont see Why it wouldn't work. It will not be full of nutrients, if that is what you are after. In the garden this is used as a source of trace elements.
