Caledonian Kelpie Seaweed soil improver provides all the characteristics needed for the successful growth of plants in a wide variety of growing situations.
This unique high performing soil improver is produced using the brown seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum which is harvested by hand from the cold clean nutrient rich waters of the North Atlantic Ocean and, as such is an entirely renewable resource.
When using in planters one 40 litre bag will fill 0.05 cubic metres.
It contains over 80 minerals, essential trace elements, vitamins and natural plant growth hormones including Cytokinins, which stimulate plant growth.
