Give your garden a seaweed boost!

02 Jul 2023 0 Comments

Looking for a magic plant food to give your green babies a boost of nutrients, go for seaweed. A healthy choice for your urban garden!

What's your favorite thing about going to the beach? Relaxing with a good book while soaking in vitamin D? People watching? Collecting shells and sea glass? Now you can add collecting an all-natural garden soil amendment to that list. On the beach, Mother Nature offers seaweed, which is one of the best tools for a healthy urban garden. And, no, you don't have to go to the beaches every time you would want to mulch your urban garden! There we have your attention - scroll up to let know how else can you get the seaweed for your plant babies.

Seaweed will benefit your garden any time of the year, but it is especially useful as a mulch to protect plants during hot, dry weather. In urban gardens, seaweed is a valuable source of food, mulch, and organic pest control all in one natural material. It is magical stuff in the water, and it’s somehow even more so when out of it. It’s incredibly healthful to us, to our animals, to our soil, and our plant babies. It seems anyone who gets to ingest a little seaweed does better for it. As seaweed breaks down into the soil, it encourages microorganisms whose activities help convert unavailable nutrients into forms that plants can use. It increases chlorophyll production and contains many micronutrients important for soil and plant health, as well as acting as a growth stimulant: it is rich in cytokinin, and plant growth hormones that work above and below ground, improving root growth. 

Seaweed can also be in the form of liquid! Yes, the same nutrient rich seaweed can be used to extract liquid seaweed plant food, like IFFCO Urban Gardens’ Sea Secret liquid, which is even more handy to use. Like a spring tonic, liquid seaweed biostimulant invigorates your plants and enriches your soil. As you fill up your sacks, let your thoughts drift to the many benefits this will bring to your very own urban garden.

  • Boosts yield & enhances plant quality
  • Seaweed contains phosphorus, which helps plants develop healthy and strong root systems. It also improves soil texture, greatly improving drainage and aeration. It increases chlorophyll production and contains many micronutrients important for soil and plant health, as well as acting as a growth stimulant. Seaweed liquid also boosts plant yield.

  • Strengthens plant defenses
  • Any time a plant is exposed to something that stresses it, whether it be lack of water, huge temperature variations, or problems with insects or diseases, the overall plant health is affected. In turn, the plant is more susceptible to other problems – similar to when your body is overtired making you more susceptible to injury or sickness. Seaweed liquid helps in numerous ways to strengthen plant defenses, making them healthier and more vigorous. Kind of like boosting their immune system.

  • Enriches the soil
  • Seaweed liquid is a broad-spectrum plant growth promoter that is rich in beneficial trace minerals and hormones that stimulate plant growth. Seaweed liquid is high in carbohydrates which are essential building blocks in growing plants, and low in cellulose so it breaks down readily. Seaweed liquid shares no diseases with land plants.

  • Boosts lethargic plants
  • Sea Secret, the seaweed liquid, contains an abundance of fully chelated (ready to use) micro-nutrients which can be readily absorbed by plants without any further chemical decomposition needed.

  • Helps lighten the soil
  • Compacted soil can benefit as seaweed liquid breaks down. As the liquid becomes incorporated into the soil, aeration is improved and the soil becomes more crumbly and moist.

  • Does not contain weed seeds, unlike bark mulch
  • Seaweed liquid does not bring any foreign weed seeds into your garden.

  • It is just one click away at IFFCO Urban Gardens!
  • This is a 100% Natural & Organic Growth Promoter & Bio-Stimulant to boost Yield & enhance Plant Quality. Enhances Stress Tolerance from heat, cold, wind, drought and disease.  It also activates soil microbial population and improves soil health. All you need to do is sprinkle lightly and mix Sea Secret with topsoil - 25-30 grams of Sea Secret is recommended for 12 pots, repeat after every 15 days, for best results. Or simply, take 2.5 ml of liquid Sea Secret, dissolved in 1 litre of water and spray directly on the foliage, after every 2-3 days. Too easy!? We know, right!

    Though, there might be some arising concerns!

    Don't worry, let IFFCO Urban Gardens erase them for you. Some gardeners worry about the salt in seaweed liquid negatively impacting their garden. Though, this is not something you should worry about - trust us! The seaweed in the Sea Secret is going to be the favorite ever snack for your plant babies. It's time to revitalize your urban garden because we know the best! Let it bloom with the Sea Secret. Thank us later, plant parents while you see your babies enjoying their new favorite treats.
