Its a tonic
Its a tonic, not a fertiliser, if your after a fertiliser get the powered version. Either workl really well.Show details
There are a few versions in the lineup I used regular Seasol and found it wanting a little being low in NPK. I think I read somewhere its more of a plant tonic, not a fertiliser. Seasol Powerfeed I found to be better. Though be warned, if you have plants in pots on concrete with no water saucers underneath Powerfeed will stain it if left unnoticed. You'll be scrubbing it for hours like I did to get rid of it. Lesson learnt.Show details
Revived sad plants and boasted new growth
My indoor plants were all looking pretty average with wilted leaves and slow growth. I started using diluted seasol and they have never looked so good! I recommend it to all of my friends and family. The concentrate also goes really far, so its value far outweighs the cost! Definitely give this a try if you’re struggling with those sensitive plant babies!Show details
Why why why NO pour nib SPILLAGE EQUALS MONEY WASTED
Love the product HATE the amount I waste with spillage from container YOU NEED. To address this issue pronto like how about adding a pour nib !????
Great for lawns
Thickened my buffalo grass lawn up considerably in just a few weeks. Amazing stuff. I apply to lawn (and vegetable garden) every 6 weeks. Would recommend to anyone keen to get impressive results quickly.
I had no idea it would be this effective!
Honestly I had no idea what to expect from it, I had wanted to buy it and use it for quiet some time, but just never did for some reason. I finally bought it recently when we got a whole bunch of new plants.
I don’t 100% follow the recommended dose I do use a bit more, but I also can’t possibly hold a full 9L watering can as half way is almost un holdable as it is.
I mix it into the water using gloves and than I water each plant with a fair bit of it. For the bigger grounded rose bush, I usually fill 2 cans.
It has been around a month now... Read more and every plant I’ve fed it to has sprouted new growth plus loads and I mean loads of flowers. The grounded rose gained double the amount, the potted one came back to life, doesn’t seem to do anything for cactuses though. The rest of the plants are looking very healthy and full of flowers as well. Ah and the grape has sprouted new leaves and is now a rich green, it was previously looking quiet ill and on the verge of death.
My plants love Seasol
I use Seasol regularly in conjunction with other general and targeted ((roses etc) soluble fertilisers. I am having such gratifying results - increased blooming, leaf growth and soil quality. All my plants love it.Show details
Seasol doesn't work. I never had any luck with using it as described, so I researched the benefits of it over other products. But it turns out, there's actually no peer reviewed research that it does any better than normal fertilizer at all. Give this a miss if you're interested in gardening!Show details
No complaints of consequence for this exceptional product. Seasol Seaweed Concentrate gives your plants a boost. So for this gardener, Seasol is a staple as I need all the help I can get :)
Had I known how much I'd use this product I would have been better off purchasing bigger volumes... 4Ltrs etc.
I did notice Seasol (as per directions) did not perform notable miracles with my newly laid lawn (Dec 2019)Show details
I am new to gardening and my prior attempts At gardening I have not had a lot of success with.
Until I discovered seasol once I started spraying the potting mix with seasol before planting and then I’d give the plant a pray with seasol and a good drink of water I have had huge success in growing my garden.
It’s great plant food, makes the soil nice and rich and helps with transplant shock too.
This is a wonderful product
It is a wonderful natural product. This tonic definitely rejuvenated my lawn on a fortnightly use. Now I started using it for all types of plants in my garden. A must-have product.
There's a reason everyone gives 5 stars
Having been new to gardening I picked up Seasol to help with plants that hadn't been looked after for a long time in a dry patch over summer. The plants immediately picked up and began to show growth not long after. One of the best fertilisers you can get on the market. I've just recently bought another 4l container and will regularly use it now that spring is approaching.Show details
My viburnums were looking tired and wilted (I think my neighbour was ripping leaves off them, hence why we planted them in the first place, for privacy).
After 2 applications of seasol, my viburnums are bursting with lots of new vigorous growth (and its winter)! I’m so pleased, I seasol everything now and all my plants are blooming. I will continue to seasol my viburnums once a month till summer for lots of bushy growth
Daphne brought back to life
I don't care what anyone says about Seasol - it saved my Daphne. After returning from a 4 week long holiday when temperatures where in the 30s and bushfires were about, my Daphne's leaves were yellow and falling off and the plant looked entirely distressed. The Bunnings lady advised me to pour a cap full of Seasol mixed in 9 litres of water in its entirety in the plant. Within a week the leaves were green and this winter the flowers were the most abundant and fragrant ever. I use it on every plant now.Show details
Having recently started growing our own vegetables, a friend recommended Seasol in conjunction with good soil, manure and lots of straw mulch. We use it regularly and have seen a increase in yield and quality of the produce we grow. Prior to using it, though abundant, our strawberries were small in size. Now, they are significantly larger, sweet and juicy. Tomatoes, zucchini and cucumbers are all producing so well that we have lots to share with family and friends.Show details
Questions & Answers
How much seasole to 1 litre of water
Recommended is very week. Its really just a soil conditioner.
Your safe to double the dose even triple, its as weak as. But even then you'll get better results from others that are true ferts.
Power feed is good but attracts flies from its smell.
Get a soluble powder from anywhere like Mitre Ten or wherever. Manutec, Yates.. flower, vegetables, fruit ferts.
Seasol normal is as weak as and just a conditioner.
I gave up on it.
Waste of money in my opinion.
How much area will 9 litre water can of powerfeed cover
Hi. Use it on outdoor plants. Away from your say windows and doors. Immediate areas. Its good but attracts flies due to its ingredients. Make sure you have plates under your plants in tubs or pots if in concrete. It will stain. I found, typically that the recommended dosage was a bit under. I worked in my teen to 30s in garden centre's. So the recommendation id up by say what they say then add 25%.
Area is hard to say, as one would ask "how long do you pour say your average 9 liter water can and for how long on the same spot!?". I do this. And I don't now use Powerfeed anywhere near my house so as to not attract flies. But id do this. A 9 to 10 litre water can, 1.5 recommend dose, and cover say a 10 seconds each area of plants. Thats not a water, its a feed. Ten seconds say per plant area. Next day I give that area a water three times that just water. Wait after that till you see it dry a bit. Might take a day, 2, 3. Then water again. Feed the same way, water, evey three weeks. My misses always says, "i can't believe how good everything looks after you feed and water".
Feed, water as needed, feed again 3 weeks later. Great method I learnt working in a nursery. Hope this helps.
Seasol does nothing, it hasn't even got enough nutrients in the product to provide any benieft. I'd like to see some science to back up your marketing claims.
Try spraying the leaves instead of the putting it straight into the soil. I usually do it early morning before the sun hits the plants so they don’t burn.. it’s done wonders for my plants
Seasol Powerfeed is better mate than standard Seasol. Its a bit smelly though for indoors and can stain concrete and attract flies! To be honest though I notice it produces mostly leaf growth. I since have switched to Thrive General Purpose for mostly leafy plants and Thrive Flower and Fruit for others. My potted chilis have taken right off since doing so. Definitely growing better than they did with Seasol
