Homemade liquid (seaweed) fertilisers.
« on: May 05, 2017, 10:03:31 am »

Just wondering if anyone has used their own seaweed fertiliser. I've made my own by just adding equal amounts of fresh seaweed and water, covering loosely and leaving for several weeks (it stinks!).

I'm just about to use it but I've come across an article that states "itís anaerobic, left to sit for periods of time that are cause for worry over toxic microbes populating. The longest an aerobic compost tea should brew is 48 hours because of the dangers involved with the lack of oxygen" (https://www.gardenculturemagazine.com/garden-inputs/nutrients/diy-seaweed-fertilizer/)

....and so I'm unsure whether to use it. I've heard a lot about homemade liquid fertilisers and most of them are just left for weeks without intervention, so I'm thinking surely they should be alright to use - any thoughts?
