I've read that seaweed is really good in the garden and has many benefits. The Royal Horticultural Society says it's a good substitute for farmyard manure.
I'm wondering if it's acceptable to take seaweed from the beach, however, from articles I've read it seems ok to do this. In any case, there's a beach not too far from where I live so I collected a bucket of it to use around the flower beds. As I was doing this, I was wondering if the seaweed would provide a hiding place for slugs and snails? Time will tell.
