    Hi
    I have been using organic liquid seaweed for years and I’ve never been sure what I’m actually spraying on to the plants.
    Does anyone know the NPK ratio of Organic Liquid Seaweed and what micro nutrients it contains?
    Thanks
    Avril

    My tomato plants are blooming but the bloom is falling off and no sign of any tomatoes. Could tell me why and what to do?

      Hi Alan,
      It sounds like Blossom Drop – a problem that happens when flowers fail to pollinate so the blossom drops off the stem.
      To encourage flowers to pollinate, shake or tap the stems gently every day and mist them with water in dry weather.

      Hi Alan,
      To be honest I’m not sure … A sealed container should do it but the friendly microbes in the tea will not last without some aeration – but algae will grow if left open and in light.

      Hi Norman,
      It is a little late in the season to grow tomatoes from seed, but you could buy plants at the garden centre or tomato plug plants online.
      This has the advantage of avoiding the problems of germination and is much more likely to lead to success. I started my first season with a few small plants from the garden centre.
      Best wishes,
      Nick
