Sometimes nature needs a helping hand!

We all know plants need water to thrive. But to really nurture your plants, and get abundant lush foliage, flowers & fruit, plants really need to be fed regularly.
The Yates team decided to do some independent growing trials with Eurofins Agroscience Services, Hastings, NZ. The trials were conducted over 10 weeks commencing October 2015 on both Cos Lettuce and Pansy seedlings. Both plants were grown in a basic potting media in a greenhouse over 10 weeks.

Eurofins tested the impact of feeding Cos Lettuces and Pansies Thrive Natural Fish & Seaweed plus or Thrive Fish Blood & Bone, versus just water on it’s own.
We think the photos from the trials speak for themselves!

But for those that like a little more detail, the report from Eurofins highlighted the following (statistically significant) differences:
Lettuces: Taller plants, larger & greener leaves, more vigorous growth.
Pansies: Taller plants, larger and greener leaves, more vigorous growth and more flowers.

Why such a difference?

Thrive Natural Fish & Seaweed+ plant food contains cold composted Fish & Seaweed, a gentle extraction method that preserves more of the delicate growth boosting compounds. This is combined with powerful levels of NPK.
Would Seaweed alone do the same job?

Seaweed is not a plant food or fertiliser, it’s actually a tonic. It’s great to kickstart seedlings and improve their root development (and hence help reduce transplant shock).

However – the research with Eurofins showed that Seaweed tonics don’t give a significant difference in the height of a plant, size or greenness of the leaves, number of flowers or growth vigour.
