Down To Earth™ Kelp Meal 1-0.1-2 is pure Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed from the clean, cold waters of the North Atlantic Ocean. Hand-harvested, carefully dried and finely milled, DTE™ Kelp Meal 1-0.1-2 is an ideal nutrient supplement for all types of vegetables, herbs, flowers and perennials.
***Kelp meal is one of the best things for seedlings because it contains gibberellic acid which is an extremely powerful growth hormone. All we do is take about a ¼ cup and add it to a normal watering can which is about 2 gallons. We allow this is make a tea for about a day or two depending on the temperature. The water should smell kinda like the ocean. We water our new seedlings with this mix twice a week. We believe this greatly improves seedling vigor and health. The kelp generally settles at the bottom and we reuse this in a soil mix, as it still has good nutrients.
