hears some info on it
Kelp / Seaweed
Contains naturally chelated minerals.
Contains the only rich natural source of vegetable Vitamin D.
Contains 25 vitamins including Folic Acid, Vitamins A, B12 and D, often lacking in vegetarian diets.
Contains sodium alginate, which actively helps remove radioactive elements and heavy metals from the body.
Contains sterols, which are reported to exhibit anti-hypercholesterolemic activity, as has B-Sitosterol in humans.
Kelp uniquely tops the list for the following nutrients: calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, iodine, and is also very high in sulfur. (Heritage F, Composition and Facts About Food, Health Research, 1971)
Seawater and human blood are almost identical in chemical constituency. No fewer than 92 different mineral elements have been found in seaweeds, including some elements which we require only in trace amounts, but whose presence is nonetheless vital to our complete well-being. Seaweeds contain many times more minerals than land grown plants, as much as 50 times more according to Dr W Black. (Black W, Proc Nutr Soc (Eng), 32, 1953) Since that was more than half a century ago, it is to expected that a land-grown plants are even less nutritious now.
Gaia Research takes the informed position that in general, most natural foods still synthesise all the essential nutrients, albeit less efficiently….other than the mineral micro-nutrients (and to a degree, the essential fatty acids) and that only kelp, which contains perfectly chelated minerals, can effectively supplement these….provided it is “micronised kelp” (reduced to the smallest physical size possible, ie ideally to mere dust), since kelp is otherwise undigestable and incapable of breakdown sufficiently to release all of its rich nutrient treasures.
Kelp is a food adjunct, which improves intestinal flora, as a result of which an increase occurs in the assimilation of other foodstuffs in the consumer. The organic iodine acts as a thyroxin precursor and regulates the metabolism. Kelp can supply daily requirements of carotenoids, vitamins A, B1, 2, 6 & 12 and D and pantothenic acid. Kelp has properties that expel intestinal worms, making it useful for both animals and humans. (SA Digest, August 26, 1983)
Kelp is highly nutritious since it has at its disposal all the nutrients which run-off from the land, but little competition to assimilate these. It preferentially bio-accumulates all the essential plant-nutrients, rejecting the contaminants, unless the latter totally predominate, as in the highly developed and populated areas of the world. Possibly the last pure kelp-beds in the world, South African West coast kelp, Ecklonia, is fed by the clean Benguela cold water currents, which flow northwards up the West coast of southern Africa from the pristine ice continent of Antartica.
hi tom ,i think i read somewhere that as long as it has had all the salt washed off its safe to use .
what about this stuff
AGGRAND Natural Kelp & Sulfate of Potash

Increases nitrogen use efficiency
Increases nitrogen fixation in legumes.
(1) 32-oz. bottle (singles)
(12) 32-oz.bottles (by the case)
(1) 2.5-gallon bottle (singles)
(2) 2.5-gallon bottles (twin-packs)
(1) 55-gallon drum
(1) 275-gallon tote
AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash is an important part of any soil fertility/plant nutrition program. It contains 8% readily available Potash, a grade of 0-0-8 (N-P-K). Potassium (K) is considered the "universal helper" and is a major contributor to plant health because it regulates so many important processes in the plant. AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash also contains 2% sulfur (S). Sulfur, called the "fourth major nutrient," has many important functions in plant growth and must be present in sufficient amounts in the soil and plant tissue to realize the benefits of nitrogen and potassium.
AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash utilizes kelp concentrate from the icy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean. Kelp from this source contains high levels of plant growth hormones, amino acids, micronutrients and potassium. When used as fertilizer, kelp makes plants more robust and healthy by enhancing their heat, drought and cold tolerance. In addition, kelp increases the plant growth rate and fruit production, size, and quality.
AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash contains minimally processed sulfate of potash from Great Salt Lake in Utah. Unlike other sources of potassium this source does not contain chloride (Cl) which can be damaging to soil life and plant roots. Potassium must be present in large quantities in plants because it is a component of the fluids which flood the plant tissue. Potassium-deficient plants are susceptible to insect attack, have weak stalks, and underdeveloped root systems. Sufficient potassium produces high quality vegetables and tree fruits. Dark green leaves, high nutritional quality, firm stalks, prolific root growth, greater plant vigor, improved nutrient uptake, higher yields, fewer blemishes increased disease and insect resistance, and increased fruit shelf-life are benefits of crops grown with AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash.
Sulfur is often present in plants in equal or greater amounts than potassium. Sufficient sulfur produces high quality and yields of vegetables, tree fruits, small grains, legumes, and forages. High protein and oil levels in seed and high protein and vitamin A production in forages and legumes are benefits of increasing sulfur fertility.
In addition to the many benefits provided by the kelp and sulfate of potash in AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash, naturally occurring proprietary ingredients added to this fertilizer release nutrients from the soil, act as chelating agents, aid in foliar and root uptake, and stimulate soil biological activity.
AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash is the key to overall plant health, quality, increased marketability, high yields and increased stress tolerance.
AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash is not available for purchase in Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, Wyoming and Wisconsin

Tombong I have been wondering whether to ask this question myself but you beat me to it mate, I had a white pied pup with pink pigmentation around her eyes & was told to feed her kelp to turn the pink pigmentation black I too are going totally organic,If I remember rightly there is a stall at all the stafford shows that sell kelp & other chemical free treatments for dogs but if I remember rightly I orded directly from there website, Would holland & Barrat sell kelp?If you get the green light with the kelp & use it would you please let me know how you get on as its too early for me to use as mine are still seedlings,nice dogs mate I have 2 myself, peace SBTUK

Hi, I ocassionally still go but not to show,I bought my first stafford 10 years ago but he had a defect so I never showed him but he"s a cracking dog,The second was a bitch who was bought as a pet but I was hoping to show her as she was from a top kennel but funnily enough ended up with a funny defect that when ppl see her instead of going what a fine example of the breed she is they pull a funny face & say ohh bless her Only a father could love her but it just adds to her wicked character shes seriously funny, A good freind of mine is a top judge does jm ring any bells ?peace SBTUK
a lot of people use seaweed extract in their grows it has been around for years,so as long as its salt free i do not suppose it matters if it is marketed for other uses.it is one of the ingredients of my compost tea.
check your pms m8

Maxicrop do one, have a search on google
Check post 4 m8 wat u rekon
if you wanna give it a try mate, i'd say go for it, just try in small doses to start,as with all the other nutes and feeds
hello mate, just seen liquid seaweed fertiliser being used to feed tomatoes on a gardening programme (yeah, geek i know).
If its good for toms, it must be good for tom's weed
cool i might give it a go on "TOMS WEED" LOL
Anybody know where i can buy this in the uk
Try your local garden centre thats were I got mine 500mls £3.99, I believe u can buy it on ebay aswell,cheers SBTUK
cheers mate will be investing.
You wont need to worry too much about nute burn, its organic, however I wouldn't use it full whack if you're using other stuff. A foliar feed is good every 2/3 feeds....
