Seaweed as manure for fruit ?
I have recently planted raspberry (both summer and autumn) canes in soil that has been recently dug over with plenty of well rotted horse manure. As I have access to as much seaweed as can be carried would this be a useful top-up ? I have heard that seaweed should not be used for fruit growing. Also an old gardening book recommends coal soot as a useful additive for raspberry cultivation, is this advisable ? I would appreciate some advice. Many thanks, Quodog
