Seaweed granules made from Australian bull kelp (Durvillaea potatorum), collected from the north west coast of Tasmania and is naturally low in heavy metals. The kelp is sustainably harvested under licence, from the beach, where it is naturally washed up following storms. It is then dried and milled, with no further processing, additives or preservatives, to give you the purest product possible.
When applied to the soil, the kelp rehydrates, swelling significantly to typically 5x in size. Wet kelp will start to decompose through microbial action, releasing nutrients and plant growth regulators. The protein and carbohydrates within the granules are important bio-stimulants for the soil microbes as well as providing indirect nutritional value to plants. The kelp contains a range of plant growth regulators including auxins, beta ones, cytokinins, sterols and polyphenols, which induce root growth, cell division and chlorophyll production.
Add a sprinkle to top dress or a small handful mixed with premium potting mix when re-potting.
