This is chopped seaweed for gardeners. Ascophyllum contains potent concentrations of trace minerals, micronutrients, amino acids and vitamins that stimulate the growth of plants, – but most important, ascophyllum contains growth hormones, including cytokinins, auxins, and gibberellins, which stimulate cell division and larger root systems. Research and field trials have confirmed the role of ascophyllum in increased crop yields, drought resistance and stress recovery. You may also find your plants are more frost hardy. Use chopped ascophyllum in seed furrows, under transplants, as a side dressing, as a plant tea or as an addition to the compost pile. Please note: we do not ship this product to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada or International destinations.
