Hello friends! In the below video I show you guys a technique I am using to add minerals and biomatter into my garden beds as well as a little mystery fruit tree that’s become a good buddy of mine. 😃
Why use seaweed? 🌱
Well, where we do start. Seaweed has 60 trace minerals and ready-to-use nutrients including nitrogen, potassium, phosphate, and magnesium. It also contains hormones to encourage plant growth! It also acts as a mulch and keeps the soil moist, as well as acting as a free type of pest control. From my research, it seems slugs especially hate seaweed because of its sharp edges and salt. Birds and other garden pests dislike it for the same reasons (wow!) It also doesn’t blow away like a lot of regular mulches as well as adds aeration. What an incredible gift from mother nature 🤗
I am going to keep you guys posted as to how my soil and plants react to the seaweed. I am very excited about the benefits! Stay tuned to see which fruit my little friend produces.
As always, I hope you enjoyed and happy growing.🌳🌿 ps. apologies for the neighbors loud air-conditioner.
