Every natural element known to man exists in the ocean. Kelp (seaweed)
concentrates these elements in its tissues and provides plants with more than 70
minerals, vitamins and enzymes.
Many scientific studies have determined what gardeners and farmers have known
for centuries: Seaweed, or kelp, is one of the most valuable soil conditioners in the
world. TerraLink’s granular kelp and kelp extract are derived from Ascophyllum
nodosum, the most widely researched kelp in the world. Our kelp is harvested
using sustainable practices from the pristine and productive waters off Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
Benefits of added Kelp:
• Improved plant health with natural bio-stimulants.
• Increased plant resistance to environmental stresses such as drought and heat.
• Increased pest and disease resistance.
• Improved plants with bigger flowers and healthier, stronger leaves, stems and roots.
• Better tasting fruits and vegetables.
Our fertilizers with stabilized nitrogen aren’t coated products and don’t rely on microbial degradation to release nitrogen.
Stabilized nitrogen does not leach and is efficiently utilized by the plant. The result is that more of the nitrogen applied stays where it is intended for improved performance, value and environmental responsibility.
Benefits of Stabilized Nitrogen
• Protects against nitrogen loss caused by
leaching and volatilization.
• Environmentally sound, providing consistent
long term feeding and steady growth.
Humic acid is a component of humus that is naturally present in soil organic matter. It is extremely important in increasing and maintaining soil fertility.
What does humic acid do?
Possessing an overall negative charge, it attracts positively charged nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and ammonium (to name a few). Humus which contains this acid becomes a bank which holds nutrients and releases them in response to plant or beneficial microorganism needs.
Their molecules attract and bind with trace minerals that would otherwise be unavailable to the plant. As plant roots grow through the soil in search of nutrients, they feed on humus. Each plant root is surrounded by a halo of positively charged hydrogen ions that are a by-product of respiration. The root actually ‘bargains’ with the humus, exchanging some hydrogen ions for positively charged nutrient ions attached to the humus.
Humus also attracts water molecules which improves the soil’s moisture holding capacity and provides carbon as a source of energy to beneficial soil microbes. This results in an active, healthy soil.

Plants require 16 essential nutrients in varying quantities in order to produce their own food through photosynthesis. The three nutrients required in the greatest quantity (called primary or macro nutrients) are Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K). Every fertilizer label will show the analysis as N-P-K. An analysis such as 18-6-12 contains by weight 18% Nitrogen, 6% Phosphorus (present as Phosphate) and 12% Potassium (present as Potash).
N- Nitrogen: Provides plants with the ability to produce more chlorophyll,
allowing them to grow quicker. Responsible for overall plant size and dark green colour.
P- Phosphorus: Aids in root development and increases flower and fruit production and bloom size. Useful during plant establishment and for encouragement of flowers.
K- Potassium: Guards the plant against diseases and aids in drought protection and cold tolerance. Also aids in root development and photosynthesis. Useful at the beginning
of summer and winter to protect from temperature extremes and to ‘harden-off’.
Secondary nutrients required in lesser quantities are Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg) and Sulphur (S).
Calcium: Aids in formation and division of cells, encourages soil microbes, increases fruit set, prevents blossom end rot in tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini and peppers. Magnesium: A key element of chlorophyll production. Makes phosphorus more available to plants.
Sulphur: Aids in development of amino acids, enzymes and vitamins. Increases seed production.
Micronutrients needed in very small quantities include Boron (B), Copper (Cu), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Molybdenum (Mo) and Zinc (Z). Also known as trace elements, micronutrients are often quickly leached out of sandy soils or in areas of high rainfall. Although needed in minuscule quantities, they are an integral part of plant health and development.
Rounding out the list of 16 essential nutrients are Chlorine, Carbon, Oxygen and Hydrogen.
