Agrica LLC, a small family-owned business based out of Brenham, Texas, sent us a sample of one of their products, ‘Marine Magic.’ It is a seaweed-based fertilizer concentrate enriched with several other organic ingredients and has received great online reviews. We decided to give it a try.
Marine Magic Benefits:
- Provides natural phytohormones and micronutrients
- Improves seed germination and root development
- Promotes bloom set and size of fruits
- Increases plant vigor to combat frost and drought
- Builds beneficial microbes in the soil
- Lengthens flowering and fruiting stages
- Extends shelf life of vegetables, fruits, and flowers
One package makes a whole gallon of concentrate. Then you add a quarter cup of the concentrate to two gallons of water. So depending on how many plants you treat, it should last a little while when applied weekly. We mixed our first batch yesterday and applied it to two of our struggling Spicebushes and one of our Pawpaw trees. Even though we’ve tried to provide soil rich in nutrients for all of our plants, we have found that occasionally some plants need extra TLC.
It’s an experiment that we hope will make a difference this year! We’ll let you know.
