Mara Enhanced High-Quality Seaweed Foliar Fertilizer (UK and EU) 1 litre
ProBio Carbon Products are available to the UK and EU; products sold by Bonsai4me.com/shop are distributed into the EU from Ireland.
Mara is a high-quality seaweed enhanced with live bacteria that can be applied to the soil or used as a foliar feed every 2-3 weeks.
The positive benefits of the use of seaweed as a growth stimulant are well-documented and it is an essential part of any feeding regime. Strictly-speaking, Seaweed works as a bio-stimulant and can be used instead of, or alongside, your favoured fertiliser.
TAKEN FROM "Probio Carbon Bonsai Products- their use and application" leaflet by Graham Morris, Mark and Rita Cooper.
"Mara is produced from the finest seaweed harvested from the Atlantic coast of Ireland . The gentle cold pressing technique, as opposed to hot extraction, preserves the natural beneficial ingredients of the seaweed. Probio Carbon seaweed extract also contains our biochar which aids fertilisation of the soil medium. Seaweed extract is often incorrectly referred to as a fertiliser, but it is in fact a growth promoting bio stimulant (phyto-hormone). Storage of Mara On receipt Mara is best kept in a cool, dark place, ideally in a refrigerator at approx. 4ºC. Ideally use within 4 months of opening and is best before 6 months of manufacture. It has a shelf life of 12 months from manufacturing when stored correctly. Application of Mara Mara is diluted at a rate of 10ml to1 litre (1:100) with water for trees in refinement or 20ml per litre for trees in development. Apply once every two weeks during the growing season. It can be applied as a root drench or foliar spray every 2 weeks during the growing season. This product contains added beneficial biochar. However, initial experience with users showed that when using a pressure sprayer for foliar feeding it could partially block the nozzle of the sprayer. The product has been since modified to minimise this issue."
