If you want to go for a blue ribbon at the fair next summer, then you may want to learn a few new gardening tricks.
Perhaps you haven't heard of using organic seaweed fertilizer before - but now we'll take a look at what this humble (if not smelly) sea vegetation can do for what you grow in your garden!
Seaweeds affect the soil by building it, adding much needed minerals as well as starches that feed the humus.
After discovering what seaweed can do, you may find yourself ready to head off to the local garden shop to grab a bag or bottle of this simple, yet effective fertilizer.
While seaweed and kelps have a bulky appearance when they are fresh, much like any land vegetation, when it dries, it looks sort of sad and limp.
But like the land vegetation, if added to soil, it supplies a vast array of nutrients, not the least of which are alginates, which are the starches in seaweed.
Although the alginates don't actually bulk up the soil much, these do act to clump soil particles and hold moisture near the roots, which is what you want.
Like tiny sponges, these starches hold onto the microscopic water droplets.
Experts tell us that plants don't like "wet feet" or to have the root system not drain well.
Yet moisture must be available to the roots in miniscule amounts. Enter the seaweed - a perfect answer to this problem.
A second important benefit of these alginates is that they act to feed the microorganisms that live in the soil, which in turn break down the soil so that it may be better assimilated by the roots.
Before any plant root system can take in any nutrients, these potential nutrients must be chelated or made "user friendly" for those roots.
The tiny bacteria that live near the plants roots feed on these starches, which are supplied by vegetation such as seaweeds.
For anyone desiring an all-natural way to bring nutrient to their plants, seaweed products are the best choice.
As you know, the sea contains a most complete array of minerals.
Because of this, seaweeds are the most complete source of plant-based minerals.
It's these plant-based minerals that are more quickly assimilated by the plant's root system and therefore the whole plant.
As an addition to an organic garden, kelp meal or seaweed fertilizers can make the difference between a so-so garden and a vibrant, healthy garden.
As you might expect, much like taking vitamins and minerals to help our body's health, so it goes for your garden.
It's long been known that our vast farmlands' soils have been depleted of essential elements due to over-raising of crops and exhausting the soil.
Seaweed, when added to the full compliment of soil amendments, can improve soil and thus increase the quality and quantity of produce.
It stands to reason that by adding seaweed fertilizer to your own organic garden, you'll begin to notice amazing changes as your garden soil as well as your plants they take in the minerals and trace elements that seaweeds provide.
