Too early to know.
from Bulls Gap TN
Comments about : Kelp Meal, 4 Lbs.:
What can I say? It's kelp meal. I'm sure it will work well, but I've only used it twice and it's just too early to tell. I do, however, really like the bag. It has a strong plastic zipper top that opens easily, but closes very securely. I suppose it could break like the flimsier plastic zippers do, but it seems like it will hold up well. And of course, it's organic, so that's a huge plus.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've worked literally HUNDREDS of pounds into my gardens
from Glenview, IL
About Me Avid Gardener
Kelp meal has improved sandy, old-lake-bed soil and lightened tough clay, and nourishes my current rooftop container garden. It's lovely to work with -- it smells like the sea! -- and the plants seem to just love it. Over time, my UPS driver got to fear early spring as he'd be delivering multiple 50# bags when I gardened in the ground. Now I need much less, but it's a mainstay of spring soil preparation. (Also a nice boost when transplanting house plants!)

Has powered my garden for decades
I have used kelp meal to improve my garden soils, both in the ground and in container gardens, for decades now. It's easy to apply, the plants LOVE it, and a little bonus is that temporary scent of the ocean while you're pouring it. An excellent addition to any soil.

kelp meal is good for making worm tea
from south miss.
I grind the kelp meal in a coffe grinder to a finer powder.i then put it in a nylon stocking and soak it in rain water in a 5 gallon bucket for few minutes thing ring it out. I repeat this several times,then do the same thing with fresh worm castings. I then add 1/2 cup mollases,2tbls.of fish fertilizer and i use a small minnow bucket aerator pump to cycle this for 36 hrs.or so.i then dillute this to make 20 gallons of tea. It has to be used immediately to prevent the microbial goodies or whatever from dying off. The mix has to be kept warm as it is being aerated..85 degrees. IMO. I have have found it does help.

First time purchase
By The Big Lean
Product is easy to use. Somewhat difficult to see when added to soil. Too early to tell if this product is going to improve growth, plant health, production or other visible rewards. Will update review after season. Not a product for the impatient gardener who wants to see fast results.

Amazing for tomatoes!
from western MA
This stuff is expensive, but worth it. Only downside is that tomatoes and other veggies get so huge they outgrow their supports, but the increase in productivity is dramatic.

Seems to improve the health of tomato plants and make them more robust
By Pet Mom

Last year, I planted potatoes for the first time using the cloth potato bins you feature. It was so successful, that I'm going to do it again this year. I thought I'd be true to my Irish heritage and fertilize them with your organic kelp meal since my ancestors used seaweed to increase the yield of their lazy beds.
