Kelp Meal Uses
Kelp Meal for Lawns
Kelp Meal is an excellent amendment to add to your lawn to help protect it from heat stress and drought. Composed of nearly 70 minerals, kelp is an excellent source of two major plant growth hormones: cytokinins and auxins. It's these nutrients that protect your lawn and help it recover.
Kelp Meal in Compost Teas
One has to simply look up "compost tea recipe" on google to find that kelp is always an ingredient in the formula. Because it is so rich in nutrients, it is almost essential to add kelp meal to a compost tea.
Kelp Meal for Gardens
Kelp meal has all the necessary nutrients that most plants need. These include macro-nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium as well as amino acids and trace elements like iron, boron, manganese, and zinc.
Kelp meal binds the crumbs of the soil together to improve its texture and water retention, especially in sandy soil.
Kelp Meal for House Plants
One of the many complaints we hear about is when people buy houseplants and the houseplant starts to die off. Many times this is caused by the soil they are in and the lack of nutrients to keep them alive for a prolonged period of time. Adding kelp meal to soil and then transplanting the house plant into it will do wonders for your houseplants.
