Organic Liquid Seaweed for Sports Turf, Lawns and Plants. A cold pressed acidic based organic seaweed Ideal feed for plants and microorganisms..

As seaweed breaks down into the soil, it encourages microorganisms whose activities help convert unavailable nutrients into forms that plants can use. It increases chlorophyll production and contains many micronutrients important for soil and plant health, as well as acting as a growth stimulant: it is rich in cytokinins, plant growth hormones that work above and below ground, improving root growth.
In general, seaweeds contain 10 times the mineral levels of land-based plants and are particularly rich in iodine and calcium. You can put them directly on beds; they will be salty, so you can’t plant direct into them, but a winter of rain will wash the excess salt away.

Seaweed is largely under-appreciated in the gardening world, classed merely as a soil conditioner or a fertiliser. Its benefits are so extensive, though, that it really should be given top billing as part of any maintenance programme for the growing of plants.

Seaweed contains over sixty minerals and trace elements, along with numerous bio stimulants, and it also contains iodene which is an excellent disease suppressant. As you can probably tell, I’m a bit of a fan of our sea-borne, slippery friend, and no wonder. All of the above reason contribute to make seaweed a top class supplement for both grass and garden.

THE WONDER OF SEAWEED IN YOUR GARDEN
Seaweed can be used as a fertiliser or soil conditioner in many different forms, for example:
• Seaweed can be dug into your soil in it’s raw form, straight from the beach
• Seaweed can be dried and either granulated or powdered
• the goodness can be extracted from seaweed to form a concentrated seaweed liquid.

In modern fertilizer use, liquid seaweed makes a highly efficient base for the nutrition of a wide variety of plants. This is because it can be safely mixed with most of the commonly used sources of nitrogen, phosphate and pottassium, along with supplements like iron. The seaweed stimulates the soil bacteria which, in turn, helps to release much of the nutrient content. In many cases these nutrients are fixed in the soil and not available to plants, whether you’re feeding grass, tomatoes, vegetables or flowers. Seaweed combats this, helping you to make the most of any nutrients being applied, and reducing the quantity required for healthy growth.
To add to the list of benefits, seaweed is also valuable in helping to break down organic matter. This is a particular benefit when treating turf, where thatch can be a serious problem if not managed properly. Finally, as if we haven’t heard enough about the wonders of seaweed, it’s also very high quality food supplement for both animals and humans. But, let’s not get greedy – before we go and eat up our entire supply, let’s first deal with its uses and benefits on our lawn and garden.

The seaweed fertiliser was also found to improve soil quality over a number of years. This is now known to be because the alginates act as a floculator, breaking down heavy soils into a crumbly free draining material. Conversely, almost fifty percent of the seaweeds constituents are humous forming, so light sandy soils become more fertile and less prone to drought damage.

seaweed can work wonders for your garden in many different ways. The following are examples of how seaweed can be used to help you in your garden:
• Flowers tend to produce more vibrant colours with application of seaweed
• Vegetables produce healthier disease free crops
• Seaweed treated Grass will be greener and produce a healthy dense sward, providing other maintenance work is carried out correctly
• Seaweed helps to prevent club root and blossom end rot
• Seaweed will prevent blight and scab on potatoes
• Dusting plants with seaweed powder deters blackfly and greenfly
• Carrots applied with the seaweed dust seldom suffer damage from carrotfly

Seaweed can also be used as a mulch in and around shrub beds, annual and perennial borders, where it will break down slowly, releasing nutrients into the soil, while again acting as a natural weed suppressant. The one exception would be to avoid treating rhododendrons, azealias and other acid loving ericacious plants. This is because seaweed creates quite alkaline conditions, not conducive to these types of plants.
