me more about SEAGRO products…
What are SEAGRO products?
SEAGRO products are 100% organic and natural soilless compost and
potting mixes. They are the perfect solution for all your indoor
and outdoor gardening needs. For a description of each of our SEAGRO
products, their contents and applications, click
Where did the name SEAGRO come from?
The prime ingredient in SEAGRO Marine Compost Mix, and SEAGRO Grower
Mix is composted ocean fish and crustaceans; a naturally nutritious
meal for all your plants, flowers and vegetables. Each bag of SEAGRO
produced helps safeguard the environment through our innovations
in processing fish offals. Fish processing plants produce tons of
by-products consisting of the inedible and unmarketable portions
of the seafood they process. SEAGRO solves this environmentally sensitive
problem by using the fish by-products as the main ingredient in the
There is a beautiful garden waiting in every SEAGRO bag. Your plants
will thrive in such a humus rich potting medium. SEAGRO also amends
and improves the quality of your existing soil, which makes it a
wise long-term investment in the vitality of your garden. Finally,
SEAGRO products are naturally composted and are 100% organic. Whether
enjoying nutritious vegetables from your own garden, or watching
your children and pets frolic on a lush green lawn fertilized by
SEAGRO, you can rest assured in the health and safety of your family.
Why are SEAGRO products of premium quality?
We take great pride in assuring that each and every bag of our product
is of the highest quality. Each SEAGRO product is: pH balanced, chemical
free, odorless, and complete with a healthy compliment of macro & micronutrients.
However, what we don’t put in a SEAGRO bag is of equal importance.
We do not use:
- Sand, soil, sawdust, black earth or any other “filler” materials
- Absolutely no industrial waste or municipal sludge
- Manure or by products originating from GMO’s (genetically modified
organisms) or growth hormone herds.
What is the difference between each SEAGRO product?
SEAGRO offers 3 premium quality products: SEAGRO Marine Compost
Mix, SEAGRO Grower Mix, and SEAGRO Premium Potting Mix. Each of these
products varies in contents and suggested applications. SEAGRO Marine
Compost Mix is a marine compost, made from a variety of ocean fish,
while SEAGRO Grower Mix is a blended marine compost and manure compost.
Both SEAGRO Marine Compost Mix, and SEAGRO Grower Mix are great for
container gardening, and also for blending into your existing soil
in your flower or vegetable gardens. SEAGRO Premium Potting Mix is
a specialty peat blend, formulated especially for propagation of
plants from seed, cuttings etc. It is also excellent for container
gardening and for your potted plants. For detailed ingredients and
applications for each product, click here.
Is it safe to plant my plants and flowers directly in SEAGRO products?
Yes! SEAGRO products are stabilized and pH balanced. They are also
specially formulated to be ready to use “as is” directly
from the bag.
I have seen / tried other fish compost products in the past;
has your company ever marketed similar products under an alternate
Over the years there have been ever increasing numbers of
compost products available to consumers. Unfortunately, some of these
products have been of poor quality, and have made some consumers
hesitant to use compost products again. Shigawake Organics Ltd. has
been producing and developing quality composts since 1985 exclusively
under the trademarked name SEAGRO. While other companies have marketed
many other compost products, several of which use the word “sea” in
their names, they are completely unrelated to our products and our
I have some questions about potting
and planting mediums in general.
What is a “soilless” mix?
Soilless mixes use alternate materials as their “base” in
place of soil, or top soil. These materials may include peat moss,
woodchips, sawdust, sand etc. depending on the product. All SEAGRO
products use peat moss.
What is peat moss and what are its benefits?
Peat moss is the result of accumulated plant and animal material,
which has decomposed in a water saturated, low oxygen environment
over a period of thousands of years. Peat is valued in the horticultural
industry both for its impressive water holding capacity, and also
for its humus rich nature. These two attributes combine to offer
gardeners multiple benefits:
- Lightens and improves aeration of heavy soils, which allows
oxygen to circulate easily, improves root penetration and water
- Increases the water holding capacity of sandy soils
- Encourages microbial activity which is the basic building block for healthy
- Increases the cationic exchange capacity of the soil; nutrients and mineral
elements bond with the humus and are released as needed to the plants roots
- Improves your soil’s texture and density, making it more resistant
to leaching and erosion.
Why are black or darker soils and potting mixes preferential to lighter soils
and potting mixes?
This is a common misconception; in fact the color or darkness of
a potting soil or potting mix has nothing to do with its quality.
Darkness in color of a potting soil or mix may be attributed to a
variety of reasons such as degree of decomposition, source of the
materials, or even from coloring that may be added to the product
to make it look darker. No coloring is used in SEAGRO products.
