When it comes to choosing fertiliser for your garden, the choice is endless. Which ingredients are best? Time and time again we come back to fish and seaweed fertilisers. They have proven themselves useful both in agriculture and horticulture for many years.
Firstly, it’s interesting to see why seaweed is such a great plant health tonic.
Seaweeds, unlike plants growing in soil, take up the majority of their nutrients from the medium they live in: the seawater. They absorb nutrients directly into their tissues. There are over 79 minerals and trace elements in seaweed, and using seaweed is a superior way of bringing in copper, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, iron and zinc to the soil in a plant-available form.
Fish is a good ingredient for plant fertilisers, as it is derived from organic and unused fishparts – a natural resource that might otherwise be wasted. It has a good amount of NPK for healthy growth. Organic fish emulsion puts micronutrients back into the soil, constantly replenishing and rebuilding. It’s an excellent all purpose fertiliser that can be used in any situation. It’s generally mild and less prone to burn plants.
SeaMax from Searles is our fertiliser of choice!
You can choose to use it as Fish & Kelp, Pure Fish, or Seaweed. We really love the Fish & Kelp because you get the benefits of both, but if your sick plants simply need to recover/strengthen rather than grow, the simple SeaMax Seaweed is a gentle option as a plant health tonic.
Searles SeaMax Fish & Kelp contains 100% pure organic fish and kelp, and uses what nature has provided to promote better flowering, fruiting & healthy foliage to vegetables, fruits, flowering plants and lawns. SeaMax Fish & Kelp naturally encourages plants’ resistance to insect and disease attack and minimises drought and frost damage. It is up to two times stronger than just using seaweed alone.
Your plants will think the fish is delish! Treat your garden today.
