A neighbor used (he's passed on now) to put seaweed mulch on his sandy
soil and he had the best garden in the area. Hope it finds a home.

Subject: seaweed mulch?


Dear Gardening/Farmer Friends,


There will be several tons of plant material (seaweed/Eurasion milfoil)
collected in the next few days from Lake Lansing...  potentially looking
for a home...

Apparently it can be used as a mulch and has advantages in that the
seeds can't germinate on land.  See excerpt below from




The harvester could potentially deliver quantities... (6 cu yards est?)
in the Lansing area.  If you have an interest, please contact

PS  My hunch is that the nutrient benefits of mulch would far outweigh
any potentially trace herbicides present in the seaweed, but I can't
find much info on this.
