United States Patent No. 6,488,732

BLACK COUNTRY ROCK is a complete, nutrient rich, pH-balanced growth medium made from 99.85% postconsumer data. Engineered as a patented chemical formula, BLACK COUNTRY ROCK contains optimum amounts of all the nutrients your garden and potted plants need to thrive. Nitrogen for robust growth. Potassium for water uptake. Phosphorus for bountiful fruiting and flowering. Calcium for root development. Magnesium for photosynthesis. Sulfur for promoting new growth. A high cation exchange rate for maximum absorption of nutrients. All released in the slow, organic way plants like best, without the use of synthetic polymers or nutrient-retardants.

BLACK COUNTRY ROCK can be used straight or can be mixed with topsoil, vermiculite, sand, or sphagnum moss to create the desired degree of friability. For best results, use your hands.

BLACK COUNTRY ROCK is a work of art and may be harmful to some plants. Like all viable growth media, BLACK COUNTRY ROCK contains naturally occurring bacteria that fight pathogens and cycle nutrients to plant roots. Persons with sensitive immune systems should consult their physician before handling BLACK COUNTRY ROCK.

BLACK COUNTRY ROCK is specifically geared toward an exclusive demographic: Bowie fans who garden. David Bowie’s lead guitarist, Mick Ronson, was the municipal gardener of the town of Hull before hitting it big on The Man Who Sold the World. Ronson’s signature song, BLACK COUNTRY ROCK, was dedicated to the industrial region north of Birmingham, England, otherwise known as “the black country” for the perpetual soot that fills the air. Happy planting.
