Give Fruits & Vegetables a Natural Boost with Seaweed Creme®

Plants grow stronger and produce earlier with help from BioFlora’s organic option.

PHOENIX, AZ (June, 2016) – For more than 800 years[1], seaweed has been the secret ingredient for success in many fruit, vegetable and flower fields.  Although growers centuries ago may not have understood the science behind seaweed’s benefits, they saw for themselves its application made their plants healthier and increased their productivity.  Gardeners today can obtain the same kind of improvements when they apply BioFlora’s Seaweed Creme to their home or small commercial gardens.

Scientists now understand the reason seaweed works so well. Dozens of experiments have documented seaweed’s effectiveness in encouraging plant root and stem growth and creating plants that resist drought, frost and stress[2].

Why Seaweed is Different with BioFlora

BioFlora, a leader in sustainable and organic growing products and practices, has found a way to enhance and maximize seaweed’s benefits in gardens. While most companies use chemical-based, high-heat extraction methods to produce seaweed extracts, BioFlora® hand-harvests, sun-dries, grinds and homogenizes the entire plant. It employs an organic, non-extracted process to carefully preserve all of the trace minerals, micronutrients, amino acids and vitamins found in the North Atlantic’s Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed used for Seaweed Creme.

“The high-heat extraction method diminishes seaweed’s content, producing a sub-standard product that is not as effective,” said Derex Zellars, new product developer at BioFlora. “Our philosophy is that Nature Knows Best®, so we employ a natural method that allows us to use the entire plant to produce the highest quality, organic product.”

In addition, BioFlora has formulated this product with the optimal amount of natural growth hormones such as auxins, cytokinins and gibberellins, which help garden plants develop a larger root system and spur earlier production. BioFlora’s addition of patented ionic minerals to enhance plants’ nutrient uptake has also improved the efficacy of Seaweed Creme.

Seaweed Creme can be used many times during the gardening season: prior to planting to improve seed germination; early in the growing season to stimulate growth; at budding and flowering to improve yields; and before harvest to increase the shelf life of fruits and vegetables. Seaweed Creme is suitable for side-dressing to increase soil fertility or can be used with a hose-end sprayer for foliar feeding.

Today’s home and small gardeners are fortunate. With Seaweed Creme, they can provide their gardens with all the advantages of the natural seaweed used by many generations of growers, enhanced with the special ingredients provided by BioFlora’s modern scientific methods.  They’ll see a very real difference in the health, quality and yields of the fruits and vegetables that they grow.
