    When Monty adds seaweed extract to his watering can he just pours some in then adds water. He does seem to pour quite a lot in.
    As it's not cheap, I measure it out as recommended on the label - 5ml per litre of water.
    The bottle does need a shake before using as the seaweed sludge settles on the bottom

    I don't watch it, but any proprietary brand of seaweed will need diluting as per the instructions, unless it's an already diluted product.
    I would agree that using more than the recommended amount is wasteful. More isn't always better anyway.  :)
