A seaweed tonic for plant and root health, made from 100% bull kelp sustainably sourced from Southern Oceans.

Great for improving plant resistance and protection against pests, drought and frosts plus reducing transplant shock.

Key Benefits

  • Reduces transplant shock in new plants.

  • Is a natural source of plant growth regulators, such as auxins, cytokinins, gibberellins and betaines, as well as alginates and minerals.

  • Is an excellent plant starter, when applied at low rates stimulates plant and root growth.

  • Aids recovery from stress conditions and improves plant resistance, eg: heat, frost, drought, pests and diseases.

  • Contains 100% cold composted seaweed (think cold pressed olive oil!), a gentle extraction method that preserves more of the delicate plant growth boosting compounds in seaweed.

Tip: Seaweed is not a plant food, it is a tonic. To feed established plants, use this product in combination with Yates Thrive Fish Blood & Bone (which is a combination of natural fish and powerful NPK nutrients for lush foliage, flowers & fruit) every 1-2 weeks.
