July 9th, 2019 | News | 0 Comments

Mr Fothergill’s Seasol Seaweed Concentrate offers a wide window of sales, almost the whole of the gardening season.

This long sales product improves seed germination and root growth. Studies confirmed that soaking seeds in Seasol prior to sowing, or watering with Seasol immediately after sowing, gives seeds the best possible start in life and leads to vigorous, uniform plants.

As well as being watered directly into the soil for uptake at the roots, Seasol can also be applied as a foliar spray for fast absorption of nutrients, throughout the life of plants. What’s more it’s chemical free, it’s even been shown to provide improved frost resistance.

Marketing Manager Ian Cross said: “The great thing about Seasol is that because it is a natural plant tonic, you can use it regularly throughout all stages of growth, from seed to mature plant, unlike general fertilisers.’’

Sow Seeds with Ease with the Mr Fothergill's Pro-Seeder

Here at Mr Fothergill’s we believe that gardening is for everyone, and should be accessible to everyone, too. But when it comes to sowing seeds, especially those pesky smaller ones like tomato, lettuce or begonia seeds for example, problems can arise when trying to sow one seed at a time, particularly if you have a disability or dexterity issue that makes sowing seeds difficult. The Mr Fothergill’s Pro-Seeder is great for tackling this problem.

The Pro-Seeder is a great little gadget which allows you to sow seeds of all shapes and sizes one at a time – no seed is wasted and it reduces the need for thinning out seedlings later. It works on a suction method and full easy-to-follow instructions are included, featuring a key diagram to show which nozzle to use when sowing seed.

Recently blogger Ross Minton, AKA Grow Your Own Life, who regularly vlogs about his allotment as well as his own experience with disability, reviewed our Pro-Seeder as a person with a disability that causes dexterity issues and therefore affects his ability to sow some of the smaller seeds by hand.

Check out Ross’s Pro-Seeder vlog below, which includes a full demonstration of how to use the Pro-Seeder. Be sure to subscribe to his YouTube channel and follow him on Twitter and Instagram for more content, and join the conversation with the hashtags #AnyoneCanGarden and #InvisibleDisability.
