Re: Sea Grow plus feritlizer

Zem - I use the Maxicrop kelp (get mine from Pinetree Seeds where I get Sugar's cat grass)
which is a very concentrated powder that you mix w/ water (no spoilage)
very little smell. My stuff just THRIVES on it. I've gotten my soil so
fertile now (according to the last fall's soil test) that it needs
nothing else really. I use it on everything from container plants to
roses and peppers. I even use a dilute solution mixed w/ a dab of Neem
as a foliar feed on my peppers and they produce from Memorial Day
through first heavy frost.

Might be worth a try. I think Marge is right, you must have gotten a bad
batch or something. Plus my house is so tiny, this container takes up no
room and lasts a whole season, even here.

just a thought...
