The ocean is the most natural, nutrient-rich part of the earth. All nutrients on the planet eventually work their way back into the ocean, and seaweed acts like a sponge, absorbing the micro-nutrients. As a result, seaweed is considered one of the best fertilizers for plants. The macronutrients cannot be absorbed without the micronutrients!
VitaminSea Seaweed offers a variety of all natural Kelp (Ascophyllum nodosum) products for your lawn, garden, trees, shrubs and plants.
