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.
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.
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
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.
Have started using this in my mix. Its nice and light. Smells reasonabbly neutral. Have potted a fig with this so far with LECA. So far its responding well without any other fertilizers used
