    Kelp meal is an organic plant food made from dried and ground seaweed, usually derived from species of brown algae in the order Laminariales. It is a sustainable and renewable resource that offers countless benefits when used as a fertilizer or soil amendment in gardens and agricultural settings.
    Remember that kelp meal is not a complete fertilizer, so it's often best used with other organic or synthetic fertilizers to provide a balanced nutrient profile for your plants. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions and recommended application rates to avoid over-fertilization.

    Benefits of using kelp meal as a plant food:

    • NUTRIENT-RICH: Kelp meal is a natural source of essential plant nutrients, including macronutrients like nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K), and micronutrients such as calcium, magnesium, sulfur, iron, zinc, and manganese. It also contains vitamins, amino acids, and plant hormones that contribute to plant health.
    • SOIL IMPROVEMENT: When mixed into the soil, kelp meal helps improve soil structure by increasing water retention, aeration, and drainage. It can also encourage the growth of beneficial microorganisms that aid in breaking down organic matter and releasing nutrients for plant uptake.
    • STRESS RESISTANCE: Kelp meal contains natural plant hormones called cytokinins, auxins, and gibberellins. These hormones help plants better adapt to environmental stressors like drought, extreme temperatures, and pests.
    • STIMULATES ROOT GROWTH: The hormones and nutrients present in kelp meal can stimulate root growth, promoting a more extensive root system, which in turn helps plants absorb water and nutrients more effectively.
    • SLOW-RELEASE FERTILIZER: Kelp meal is a slow-release fertilizer, providing a steady supply of nutrients over an extended period. This helps reduce the risk of over-fertilization and nutrient leaching, contributing to more sustainable gardening practices.

    How to use kelp meal:

    Kelp meal is applied in one of two ways:
    1. Soil amendment: Mix kelp meal into the soil before planting or during the growing season. Use about 1 to 2 pounds (0.45 to 0.9 kg) per 100 square feet (9.3 square meters) of garden space or follow the manufacturer's recommendations. Work the kelp meal into the top few inches of soil to ensure even distribution.
    2. Top dressing: Sprinkle kelp meal around the base of established plants and gently work it into the soil surface. This can be done at any time during the growing season to provide a slow-release nutrient boost.
