Stored home made liquid seaweed feed...

I have some cartons of liquid seaweed feed along with a bin 1/3 full of the stuff, left over from last year. Shudder to think what it must smell likeimage.

How long does it keep for? Is it better to make a fresh batch and dispose of this lot? The seaweed was taken out of the bin last year so it's just fluid in there now.

    I was wondering if the salt in it killed slugs?

    Would love homemade seaweed feed but alas I am landlocked!

    That wasn't the answer I wanted Verdunimage. Need to think now how to dispose of itimage.

    Lyn. Don't think it kills slugs and snails but spraying plants with liquid seaweed does deter them, you need to start spraying plants early though before snails and slugs become active. I did last year and was slug and snail free until July time, which is when I went on my jollies, came back to an infestation of them. Egg shells and gravel worked in the GH though and continued to work through out last year.
