Why to Use Celtic Moss Seaweed Fertilizer ?

Generally, there are 6 steps to plant and harvest seaweed.

  • Building of the farm support system – staking and putting up of line support system.
  • Preparation of seed stock cutting of 50 – 100g
  • Attaching seed stocks to support lines
  • Harvesting: Detaching seaweeds from support lines or removing the whole support lines from the stakes and loading these into the bance, or floating baskets.
  • Post harvest activities: drying spreading harvest on drying platform lined with fine mesh nylon netting materials.
  • Packing: dried seaweed (40% moisture content) into nylon sacks (60 – 80 kg.wt)

How about Celtic Moss? What are the differences between Celtic Moss Seaweed andand others?

Celtic Moss also have 6 steps to plant and harvest seaweed as well, but the action we take in Step 4 and Step 5 are totally different.

  • We harvest our seaweed at night rather than in the day time. (This is because when seaweed expose to the Sun, seaweed will produce chlorine to protect themselves. Chlorine is definitely no good for human. And, when seaweed expose to the Sun, at least 20% of nutrition will be gone).
We do not place the seaweed under the Sun to make it dry but we high tech, moisture vacuum dehumidification process to make the seaweed dry. Our seaweed never expose under the Sun. We keep all of the nutrition in our seaweed.


Agricultural & Forestry in Ireland

The Irish Government's commitment to the agri-food sector remains strong. In the Supplementary Estimate for 2009, €1,985 million was provided for agriculture, fisheries and food and public expenditure will amount to over €3.3 billion when the Department's Vote is combined with EU funding of €1.4 billion. The high proportion of expenditure on local raw material and services as well as the dispersed nature and composition of the sector will ensure that the agri-food sector will play an integral part in the recovery of our economic success and the continued viability of rural and coastal areas.

Gardening Tips From Celtic Moss

Nothing about gardening is more depressing than watching your plants shrivel and die and not knowing why. That’s where my first tip comes in. Knowing what you can grow where you live is important so that you don’t try to grow things that require a very hot dry climate when you live in an area that gets a lot of rain.

Now I would like to share some of the gardening tips that others shared with us.

1. Plant Hardiness Zone – Know The Plants That Will Grow Best In Your Area.

It’s good to start with flowers, shrubs, trees and veggies that do well where you live and that’s where knowing the hardiness zone you live in will help. When you purchase plants or seed they should have a tag that tells you the growing conditions and hardiness zone. Stick with plants in your plant hardiness zone and you should do quite well.
Just go to your favourite search engine and type in: plant hardiness zone for [your location]. Once you know the zone you will be able to look up plants for your zone.
Make your gardening experience more enjoyable by know what grows best in your area. Once you have the hang of gardening you can move onto some things that need more attention and maybe even a longer growing season, but that’s for another day.

2. Know The Growing Season Where You Live.

Here we have to deal with frost so it’s important for me to know when the threat of frost is over. Knowing that June 10th is usually the last of the frost threats I can plan my planting around that date.
Knowing when the season is over helps as well because then you have a good idea of how many days you have from the time you plant until your season is done. So, if June 10th is the starting day and Sept. 15th is the last day then you just add up the days and you have a good idea of how long a growing season you have. Approximately that is.
Once you know the number of growing days you have you can check each plant or seed package to see the length of time it takes to grow to harvest. Of course this doesn’t apply to plants that have a very short growing season, like radishes or lettuce.
It may seem strange to say know your growing season but it can be really disheartening when you plant too early only to be hit by a frost that kills all you planted. So know when your area usually is safe from frost. Here we usually say after June 10th but that doesn’t mean you can’t plant and prepare before that.

3. Know Where You Will Get The Best Sun For The Summer.

I made some major blunders when we first started growing flowers in our yard. I didn’t pay attention to where the sun was going as spring turned to summer and found a lot of my plants that needed sun light were in the shade after their first month.
Take note of the buildings and trees that may block areas of your yard. Know where the sun is going to be tracking across your yard during the growing season and plan for it. Put the shade loving plants in the path that gets shaded at the hottest time of the day. And of course you will want your sun loving plants to get the most of the sun you have.

4. Proper Drainage And Soil Preparation.

When we started digging up the spot where our vegetable gardening would go we knew the soil was clay and had very poor drainage. We knew that because ducks would land in our yard like it was a pond. But the area we have our garden is the area we get the most light for the summer and it needs to be there.
Focus on making your soil the best it can be and you will have won half the battle of gardening right there.

5. Learn About Garden Pest And How To Deal With Them.

An example that makes me laugh is about growing zucchini. I would go out each day and look at the zucchini plant and wonder when it was going to get some zucchinis growing but all I could get to grow was beautiful yellow flowers and then they would just fall off in the night.
Well, I soon learned that my problem was slugs. They love coming out at night for party time with my zucchinis. Once I learned a few methods of getting rid of them I actually got to see the flowers extend into little green zucchinis.
