Tips and general know-how on using algae
I was just wondering what the florida gardening forum thought about algae for use as both a fertilizer and a soil conditioner. I've read many sources saying that it is an excellent resource. But how do you guys recommend using it? Personally, I have been draining and rinsing it and putting it in my compost heap. But now, I have been thinking of adding it directly to the garden as part of a lasagna gardening strategy. Is this a good idea? In terms of nutrient content, what are the benefits and shortcomings of algae?
