Allotment Shop news
The shop will be open on Saturday mornings, 10.00 – 12.00 until the end
of October. We hope to order some Seaweed Meal (NB not Calcified Seaweed) for next season. This is likely to be priced at around £1.70 per kg. We want to order sufficient to cater for all
members. If you are likely to want to
purchase a full 20 kg of Seaweed Meal from us please let us know before the end
of September, via firstname.lastname@example.org so that we order sufficient. It is unlikely
that we will be able to put in a second order for this product.
Seaweed is a
fantastic soil conditioner and helps to improve plant health. Used as a soil
improver, it builds up the humus structure of the soil, stimulates microbial
activity, and provides a range of micro nutrients as well as vitamins and
alginates. A single application provides a slow-acting, long lasting plant food
which is broken down over a period of months by the soil bacteria providing a
health benefit to all crops grown. Recommend
application is at 200g/m².
