A unique cold press manufacturing process allows SeaFeed Xtra to retain more of the biologically active compounds needed for your plants and produces a more concentrated liquid fertiliser.
How Does SeaFeed Xtra Work?
SeaFeed Xtra provides plants with essential micronutrients to help promote growth and create strong, resilient plants. As well as containing all the usual nutrients that can be found in seaweed, SeaFeed Xtra contains a unique formulation that improves the plants uptake of nutrients without having to expend any unnecessary energy breaking them down. It can be applied either by foliar spray, root drench or a combination of both on a wide range of fruit, vegetables, shrubs and lawns.

What Is Liquid Seaweed Fertilizer?
Liquid seaweed fertiliser is a very simple product in theory. Seaweed is pressed and then the concentrate is diluted to produce the liquid fertiliser. Most seaweed fertilisers contain around 1-3% of seaweed and the rest is water and in some products, colouring. SeaFeed Xtra contains 5% solids, added nutrients and our unique nutrient delivery system that enables plants to easily absorb the additional nutrients without exerting any additional energy.
Is Seaweed Fertilizer Good for Plants?
Seaweed has been used for centuries in coastal locations as a natural fertiliser as it is rich in nutrients, it is cheap and because of where it grows, it is very resilient to harsh weather and disease. Seaweed is an excellent source of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium and up to 60 trace elements, all of which are essential to a plants growth. It also includes amino acids and hormones to accelerate plant growth.
Why Use Seaweed Fertilizer?
As mentioned above, seaweed has a whole host of benefits for your garden, from providing extra nutrients to improve plant growth, to encouraging strong, resilient plants. As well as the above-mentioned benefits seaweed also helps to deter slugs as it can make plants taste saltier, although this change in taste is so small that humans cannot taste it.
