Re: kelp

Several sources.  Maxicrop, the cheapest source is Pinetree Garden Seeds out of Maine - www.superseeds.com.  And Charley's Greenhouses and Gardening Supply out of Washington state has three kinds of Maxsea.  One for acid plants, one all purpose and one for blooming plants, I use all three
types.  www.charleysgreenhouse.com for them.  All are excellent and are highly concentrated so a container lasts a long time!  Just mix a tablespoon of powder to a gallon of water, less for containers and houseplants.  Great stuff and organic - what's not to like?
