Seaweed in the garden
Again I am going to recommend a product which Judy and I use all the time in our garden and believe has helped make our garden and plants so healthy all year round.
We are great believers in the benefit of using Kelp (seaweed) in the garden as a foliar, transplanting and soil conditioner.
NatraKelp has their factory situated in Maroochydore and processes the kelp which has been imported from Tasmania.
We believe this is a very superior product to some you can buy, it comes out of the container like treacle and we mix it at a 10 to one rate which is 100 mills in a watering can.
NatraKelp make liquid seaweed from Tasmanian bull kelp (Durvillea Potatorum) one of the world's richest sources of micro-nutrients, alginic acid, essential amino acids, minerals and other complex organic compounds. They use a natural bacterial fermentation process to liquefy the kelp and maximise the seaweed's high nutrient levels. When we buy new plants or do any transplanting we always water them in with a kelp solution.
With the foliar spray the one we use is an 18-3-10 solution we spray all the plants at least every month,
NatraKelp soil conditioner is a mix of several different types of seaweed and helps the soil retain moisture this liquid seaweed plant and soil conditioner uses a base of premium seaweed, blended to increase its natural "stickiness" and water-retention qualities in soil. This product not only enhances moisture retention and soil structure at the same time, it promotes healthy plants by delivering a package of essential nutrients.
Our garden is a success partly due to our use of Natrakelp products.
