- UK MAINLAND ONLY
- CALCIFIED SEAWEEED
- Improves soil germination
- Increases uptake of soil nutrientes
- Resistant to frost
Major attributes Suitable content of nitrogen & potassium, but lower in phosphorous than traditional manures and the typical NPK ratios in chemical fertilizers. Large amount of insoluble carbohydrates in Ascophyllum nodosum acts as soil conditioners (improves aeration & soil structure, especially in clay soils). Good moisture retention properties. Powdered Ascophyllum nodosum may be composted for 11-12 days and may be easily stored. This may be added to water and sprayed on steep slopes (which are difficult to compost) which may lose soil by water run-off. The composted seaweed sticks to the slopes and holds any soil in place; it also retains enough moisture to allow seeds to germinate. Composted Ascophyllum nodosum may be used after the construction of roads. Apply to fruit, vegetables and flower crops for 1. Increased yield. 2. Improved soil germination. 3. Increased uptake of soil nutrients. 4. Increased resistance to pests/insects. 5. Resistance to frost. 100% organic. organic granular seaweed used to condition soils prior to planting and as a top dressing to established plants and turf. Top Dress breaks down it gently releases nutrients. Alginates, which are unique to seaweeds act to improve the structure of clay soils whilst increasing the water holding capacity of sandy soils and soil less components. Seaweed is rich in trace elements (over 60) ensuring healthy plants. Top Dress feeds lightly and will not produce excessive growth. Top Dress will also help to accelerate the breakdown of compost into a rich loam.
