Bonsai Milled Seaweed

Size

Description

Ecklonia maxima (giant brown kelp) is sustainably collected off the Southern African coastline. It is then sundried. After drying it is milled to a 3mm particle size.

What can it be used for?

Milled seaweed is useful as a soil additive for:

  • Moisture retention
  • Slow release of nutrients to the bonsai roots

How to use milled seaweed

Add a small amount of milled seaweed to your bonsai soil mix. The ratio will depend on your desired results but typically a handful for a small bonsai pot and a large scoop for a large bonsai tree.

Bonsai Tree

Recently bought Milled Seaweed, Pumice, draining mesh as well as a chisel. As usual excellent service and quality and value. For me the only Bonsai shop.

Goodness from the sea!

It is well known that ecklonia maxima is rich in trace minerals that help any plant adjust to a repotting/planting process. I had to repot a few trees mid-summer, and the kelp really helped them to abosrb the shock quite nicely. I've also had great success soaking it in water for a few days to make my own cheap kelp extract. Great for my bonsai, AND great for my veggie garden. Love it.

Must have in your mix

I like that its very neutral in odour ...was expecting much worse. I have used in my established trees and as a recent blog suggested...my newly acquired hardwood cuttings soil mix too. The soil retains moisture longer than without the seaweed in the mix and its great knowing the trees and cuttings are getting fed in a slow controlled way

Great mix to add to your Bonsai mix

What a great product. Re potted my Juniper and added the milled seaweed, it has a very nice smell to it and found it is a very good water retention product. The results that I have seen from this product is fantastic and will definitely be adding it to all my Bonsai mixes when I need to re pot my other Bonsai's.
