Shropshire Seaweed Organic Growth Enhancer

The lovely people at The Shropshire Seaweed Company sent me a bottle of their 1 litre bottle of Growth Enhancer to try, to see what I thought, and give my opinion. As you know by now, I have many own opinions about many things, some which people don’t agree with, and other do. I’ve just started to use this today, and having watered much of the garden with last nights bath water (lots of goodies in that) the only thing left to water were the plants in the greenhouse. All you need of this fertiliser is 1 cap full in a watering can of cold water, give it a stir, and off you go. I’ll let you know how the plants do, but it seems that they should like it. I’ll start using it down the allotment next week, to hopefully boost them a bit. Some of the soil is a bit poor, as it’s not been dug for a couple of years. I know this sounds a bit weird, but I gave it a quick smell to see if it smelt like the sea, but to my surprise it didn’t, but instead smelt like Tia Maria! Don’t ask me why, but it also looks like Tia Maria, so please don’t get them mixed up. I like Tia Maria, but prefer Southern Comfort.

    I’m intrigued – how do you save/store the bath water and isn’t the soap etc a problem?

    • I have a “Submersible Butt Pump” which I put in the bath, and it pumps the water down to the water butt outside, then I use a watering can to water the plants. The soap and other bits we use in the bath are fine. This is a question lots of people have, but if you’d use it on your skin, then it’s ok for the plants. I also use washing machine water if needs must, but not dishwasher water as the tablets have bleach and other bits in the tablets, which are not suitable for the plants. When we had that really hot summer (do you remember that about 7 years ago)? I had the only luscious green grass and beautiful flowers where I live, because I used the bath and washing machine water. The plants loved it! Once it’s in the butt, it’s best to use within 48 hours, otherwise it starts to smell a bit, but can be left for longer if necessary.

    Another cracking post I’ve never used seaweed as a feed but this other chap has on our allotment, I’ve only just started to try compfrey feed which I started to make last year and it stinks.

    • Yes it is rather smelly. I’ve got some Comfrey plants on my plot. The bees love it, but if it gets too large I chop it back. I’ve given a friend a load of leaves to make feed with, but because it smells so much I’m looking for a way to make it more bearable, then I’ll make a video.
