What is the difference between Seasol and PowerFeed?
Seasol is made from Durvillaea potatorum and Ascophyllum nodosum turning it into a seaweed concentrate that is a complete garden health treatment that contains plant nutrients, trace elements, alginic acid and other bioactive compounds. Seasol promotes healthy roots, encourages beneficial soil micro-organisms, stimulates flowering and fruiting and helps plants to cope with stresses like heat, drought, frost and pest and disease attack.
PowerFeed is a fertiliser thatg also contains dynamic soil improvers in the form of humic acids. These compounds work at very low rates and are literally like adding liquid composts to the soil. PowerFeed is also a clay breaker which stimulates beneficial soil microbial activity and markedly reduces leaching in sandy soils.
Does Seasol or PowerFeed have a use by date?
Seasol and PowerFeed liquids are fine to use for up to five years.
The date on the back of the container starting with “DOM DD/MM/YY” is the date the product was manufactured.
Seasol and PowerFeed granules (with Troforte) contains beneficial microbes that are activated when exposed to moisture. We recommend storage of open and unused fertilisers for a maximum of 12 months in a moisture free environment for best results upon application. Please keep the lid closed when not in use.
Can I apply Seasol and PowerFeed to the foliage as well as the soil?
Yes, Seasol and PowerFeed (liquid) is taken up very effectively through foliage as well as through the soil.
Products that contains a soil wetter such as Seasol Super Soil Wetter and Conditioner, PowerFeed PRO SERIES All Purpose including Natives or PowerFeed PRO SERIES Flowers, Fruits & Citrus, are soil applications only. Please ensure that you do wash it off the foliage, to prevent burning.
750mL Seasol Pots & Planters and PowerFeed Pots & Planters trigger spray and 1.25 Lt PowerFeed Indoor and Potted Plants trigger spray are highly concentrated products, so please only apply to the soil.
CAUTION: Application is not recommended on days that may exceed 25° degrees.
What is the best time of the day to apply Seasol and PowerFeed?
First thing in the morning or late in the evening. Do not apply Seasol and PowerFeed during the heat of the day. As PowerFeed is a fertiliser it may burn the foliage of the plant or lawn. If fungal problems are an issue, it is best to apply Seasol and PowerFeed in the morning to avoid moisture residue on the foliage overnight.
If I apply Seasol or PowerFeed to my vegetable garden, can I eat the produce straight away or is there a withholding period?
There is no withholding period after applying Seasol or PowerFeed when harvesting fruit and vegetables.
However, with all plant treatments, it is important to wash edible plants before eating.
