Hello Dawn and Kia Ora,
The ingredient that will help you
out if you have it is dolomite, a favourite of mine in pottery glazes and
also in the garden. On peas and beans, and any plants that require calcium
or magnesium and it works well. The sweetpeas are always beautiful. I
also take it for arthritis, our local dolomite does not have heavy metals in
it unlike some from overseas. (I am really sticking my neck out here so hope
I have not caused too many ripples).

I have a very large quantity I bought some time ago and at my age feel sure
it will see me out!
Wonderful ingredient. Go for it Maggie in New Zealand.

My baby squashes are rotting on the blossom end and my organic gardening
book says it is a lack of calcium. Are there any glaze ingredients in the
studio I can safely add to the soil to increase the calcium? .or I can
always add egg shells but I thought a powdered form of calcium would be
faster acting.
