    Hello,
    A nursery here on southern Vancouver Island promoted a spring fertilizer for mature roses that is comprised of 1 cup alfalfa meal, 1/4 cup of bone meal, 1/4 cup magnesium sulphate and 2 tbsp of paramagnetic (mineral?) soil. The first three ingredients are common enough, however the nursery in question was the only one selling the paramagnetic supplement. My question: is paramagnetic soil a viable ingredient; if so, why is it so hard to find? If not, what's the rationale for using it?
    Thanks
