K + M Aquatic Plant Enterprises Ltd operates out of Killinick, Co. Wexford, within easy reach of the miles of stunning coastline in South East Ireland. Known as the “Sunny South East”, it is also known for its rich diversity of seaweed plant life.
It was this diversity and Mother Nature’s source of raw material that inspired Mary Meyler to start K + M Aquatic Plant Enterprises Ltd. Her goal was to harness the natural benefits of seaweed for cultivating plants. She therefore began to develop products for use in domestic gardens, as well as within the agricultural and horticultural community. It was important to her that these products would be kind to the environment and sustainably harvested. And so, in 2013, Ocean Leaves®, our brand name, was born…
Ocean Leaves® seaweeds, including Ocean Leaves® Liquid Seaweed Extract and Ocean Leaves® Wild Organic Seaweed, act as biostimulants. They can help to regulate and enhance the plant’s physiological process, i.e. the normal healthy functioning of the plant. This results in increasing plant health and plant growth, as well as improving soil condition. Ocean Leaves® seaweeds are organically certified and Guaranteed Irish, and you can use them by theirselves or in tandem with other fertilisers. By using Ocean Leaves® you can help to enhance the plants ability to assimilate or soak up applied nutrients. This will help to improve crop yields, quality and post-harvest shelf life, as well as increase resistance to frost and drought.
Ocean Leaves® offer a range of seaweed fertilisers and plant care products, each in multiple sizes. These seaweed products are sold in garden centres throughout Ireland e.g. Botanic Home & Garden Centre. You can also purchase them directly from our online shop. We also sell our seaweeds to commercial fruit and vegetable growers as well as nurseries. If you are a commercial grower or nursery contact us directly to find out more about Ocean Leaves® and also for more information on the larger volumes available.
