Remin (Scotland) trials rockdust at 100 acre garden

REMIN is using plants from a local garden centre to trial its rock dust products.

The 100-acre gardens of Inchmarlo Retirement Village in Aberdeenshire are the scene for trials of REMIN rock dust using bedding plants from Banchory’s Raemoir Garden Centre.
Six new planters are now planted up at the foot of the steps in front of the mansion - three with REMIN volcanic rock dust and three without.
REMIN (Scotland) owner Jennifer Brodie said: "This ancient rock dust’s potential is still unrecognised and I’m delighted that [Inchmarlo owner] Professor Charles Skene has afforded me this opportunity to demonstrate its capabilities on his beautiful estate. We already have several NE Scotland converts, with Mrs Panny Laing of Logie Estate near Forres being a valued, long-standing convert. When the Logie Estate gardens were featured on BBC Beechgrove Garden, Panny advised viewers that the rock dust had helped the gardens make a dramatic recovery from recent renovations."
REMIN was winner of the 2015 Four Oaks Trade Show "Best New Product or Service" Award. REMIN was also a Finalist in the 2017 Garden Retail Award. REMIN has full organic approval by the Scottish
Organic Producers Association and 3 other organic accreditation authorities.
Brodie added: "We’ve had a great time setting the planters at Inchmarlo and look forward to monitoring them over the coming months. That we’re able to provide a beautiful and colourful outlook for residents of the care home and at the same time demonstrate REMIN’s ability to improve soil and compost fertility, just makes our trial all the more special."
