hello ernies magic boots in responce to you question about how to use seaweed in a polly tunnel
I collect the seaweed from the beach and pile it up. It stays in small heaps for 5-6 weeks .the rain washes a lot of the salt away. The seaweed will start rotting down a little then it is dug into the soil. If you make a small trench in your raised bed put some seaweed into the trench cover with soil i repeat this until the bed has seaweed buried all the way down the bed. i also use seaweed as a mulch on the surface of the bed this will prevent weeds from growing on the surface of the bed. I always have a few wheel barrows of seaweed rotting all through the year .every time i plant something in to the soil in the tunnel i add a good trowel full of well-rotted seaweed into the planting hole for tomatoes peppers courgettes etc. If you use the seaweed as a mi collect the hello ernies magic boots
