Hi all,
I want to mulch my new Eleagnus Hedge with seaweed for the winter, my questions are:
A: Is it safe, will the salt affect it?
B: Will it keep the weeds down?

thanks in advance all Smile

Ah I was only winding you up.
Yes it will keep weeds down.
Escellonia is a plant that does well by the seaside so seaweed should not be a big problem especially if you leave it to weather a while the salt will get washed out of it hope this helps.
