Herbaceous plants UK
This world renowned shrub and herbaceous plant grower has a large demonstration garden. Some 15 years ago there were a number of plant health problems which have progressively been remedied largely through regularly using a combination of seaweed meal and SM6. Whenever new shrubs are planted, or herbaceous plants are divided and replanted, they are watered in with diluted SM6, irrespective of weather conditions. “I’ll admit it looks a bit odd to visitors when they see me watering in the rain! For the last ten years we have had this as an established routine and the garden looks better than ever each year.”
*SM6 Seaweed Extract can also be used to advantage on a wide range of horticultural and agricultural crops.
