Grandson Finds Grandfather's Long Lost Secret Formula
NH Man Transforms Grandfather's Secret Organic Plant Food Recipe
Into Pet-Safe Organic Gardening Product
Candia, NH - Entrepreneur Steve Frost was reading a book that he inherited from his grandfather, when he came upon a piece of notepaper tucked in the pages. Handwritten on that slip of pages was the secret to a new business. "It was my grandfather's recipe for his organic seaweed plant tonic," explained Frost.
As an experiment, Frost used the discovered recipe to mix up a small batch of the plant food. "I fed the plant food to the plants at my house and was impressed with the results," said Frost. "Then I did some research on the Internet, and found university studies that proved the many benefits to using seaweed on plants".
Frost also discovered another benefit of seaweed fertilizer over chemical fertilizers-it's safe for pets and children. "I found lots of incidents of pets and people suffering illnesses from the toxic ingredients in chemical fertilizers," said Frost. "Because seaweed is essentially a vegetable, it's organic and safe for kids and pets."
From his Grandpa Joe's original recipe, Frost has produced Grandpa Joe's Seaweed Secret sold in quart and pint sizes at the Grandpa Joe website ( http://www.grandpajoeplantfood.com ).
At the company's website, you can learn more about the research done by University studies showing the benefits of seaweed as a garden and lawn fertilizer.
Several university studies have shown that seaweed can produce dramatic results in plants: geraniums produced more flowers per plant; grapes were sweeter; gladiolus corms grew larger; and cucumber yields increased 40 percent and the fruits suffered less often from softening and rotting. Improved yields after seaweed treatments were measured in potatoes, sweet corn, peppers, tomatoes, apples, strawberries, okra, and oranges. Better frost tolerance, increased seed germination, and greater capacity to absorb trace elements were other documented benefits for plants.
