Seedweed seeds

Sea Magic from Bonadea Gardens of Winnipeg is a dry soluble seaweed extract that can be used in the home garden on all vegetables, flowers, fruit trees and shrubs, lawns, even houseplants. The seaweed in Sea Magic (Ascophyllum nodosum) is harvested from the cold clear waters of the North Atlantic and is quickly dried using a special procedure designed to keep its natural qualities intact. Just dissolve the 1/2 ounce packet in a 2-liter pop bottle filled with warm water to make a liquid concentrate.
