Seafeed Seaweed & Poultry Manure Plant Feed & Natural Fertilizer
We all know chicken manure pellets are an excellent source of nitrogen for the plants in our vegetable garden. Nitrogen is the element responsible for green, leafy growth and so is what you want for crops like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, kale and spinach. Seafeed goes a few steps further by mixing free range poultry manure, fish, seaweed and humic acid to create the best natural fertilizer pellet available. This is the best all round natural pellet fertilizer we're come across and is a vital part of our garden toolkit, highly recommended. Seafeed was formerly available on our site as Seamungus.
Seafeed undergoes a unique composting process which has been designed to stabalise the nutrient content and to maximise the availability of those nutrients. The finished pellets are guaranteed free of any pathogens, parasites and weed seeds.
Vegetable plants take a lot of nutrients form your garden soil and as we remove the vegetables and eat them very little of these valuable elements are returned to your garden. The benefits of adding organic materials to your garden are well known with seaweed being recognised as one of the top performers. Seaweed contains naturally occurring growth stimulants as well as a very broad range of essential minerals and trace elements which are used in the growth of strong, healthy plants.

Why is seaweed so beneficial?
Seaweed has been used for centuries by Celtic and Scandinavian people as a soil improver, in fact in many cases (the Aran Islands off the West coast of Ireland for example) the soil has been entirely built on a seaweed base.
The sea is very rich in minerals and as the seaweed grows it absorbs minerals in its plant tissues which are then released and made available to plants when the seaweed is broken down. Scientists have found in seaweeds a veritable soup of plant-growth stimulants, vitamins, chelating agents, trace minerals, enzymes, and amino acids, all of which influence the growth of plants in different ways.
Studies have shown that seaweed can produce dramatic results in plants including 40 percent increase in yield from cucumbers and potatoes. Plants have been seen to have better frost tolerance, increased seed germination and a greater ability to absorb trace elements. Plants also seem to suffer less transplant shock because of the growth hormones contained in seaweed so handy as a liquid feed before planting out vegetable seedlings.
