How does it work ?
Plant root hairs can directly feed from
the calcified seaweed's reservoir of available balanced minerals and trace
elements. Furthermore these trace elements are quickly colonised by soil bacteria
that creates humus, the establishment of worms, and contributes to a better
soil structure and root development. This effect enables plants
to fully utilise the soil minerals and trace elements that are already present
* improved soil structure
* deeper rooting plants
* increased availability of trace elements
* long lasting, does not wash away
* healthier - no lock up of valuable minerals
* maintenance of correct pH
* can be applied any time of the year
General rate:- 4oz. - 8oz (2
handfuls). per square yard
J.I. Composts:- Use in place of chalk or lime at the directed rate
Keep sweet with a dusting every 6" of organic matter. Improves bacterial
action, stimulates the breakdown of useable compost
Correcting soil acidity:- After soil testing, apply calcified seaweed
instead of lime, as indicated by the test
Exhibition work:- e.g. Chrysanthemums, sweet peas,
Dahlias, Leeks, Onions. A light dressing of 4oz. per square yard is recommended.
Potting:- 1 handful per 2.5 litre pot
When to apply
Calcified seaweed is a completely safe,
natural, marine mineral and can be used any time of the year. On heavy soils
it is most effective at the time of final soil preparation
e.g.autumn or early winter. On lighter soils apply pre sowing, or before or
during planting out. As a boost it can be used at any time.
How to apply
Sprinkle calcified seaweed over the
surface of the soil, and and then lightly hoe it into the
top 3" - 4". If applied early it may be left on the surface to wash

Do not use calcified seaweed on ericaceous
plants such as rhododendrons, azaleas, heathers etc.. unless a higher pH is
Falmouth calcified seaweed contains
ALL the essential elements that are not applied with compound fertiliser.
The Public Analysts report on the 15th July 1998 shows that the sample of
calcified seaweed contains:
Calcium 42%. . Magnesium 4.2% . . Zinc154mgs / Kg . .
Copper 9.6mgs / Kg . . Sulpher 0.22% . . Iron 31mgs /
Kg . .
Manganese 121mgs / Kg. . Cobalt 1.5mgs / Kg Boron 2.5mgs
/ Kg . . Cadmium 1.9mgs / Kg Chromium 0.1mgs / Kg . .
Lead 14mgs / Kg. . Nickel 2.2mgs Kg
All of which are trace elements
and minerals which suplement the soil, and help biological action to condition
and enrich the soil, which in turn releases trace elements and minerals to
nourish produce, cereals, corn, fruit and flowers, lawns and pastures.
Calcium - Cell structure
Magnesium - Photosynthesis, enzyme system of plant, and phosphate utilisation
Iron - Photosynthesis
Manganese - Photosynthesis and seed formation
Copper - Correct growth and health of plant
Cobalt - Health of plant and essential for micro-organisms that fix
Boron - For uptake and utilisation of calcium and nitrates and carbohydrate
production in the plant
Sodium - (salt) for potassium utilisaton
Sulpher - For the production of the essential
amino acids, cystine and methionine, linked with nitrogen
Calcified seaweed is recommended for
cereals, grass, roots, brassicas, orchards and vines.
It is better, safer, healthier, longer lasting and cheaper.
