I make nettle feed every year which I mainly use to feed my pots on the patio. Can I use it on runner beans too and other vegetables?

Hi, i think you can, but off the top of my head i cant remember what its best for , id err on the side of caution and make it very weak

It's high in nitrates, so best for leafy veg like cabbage, lettuce etc.  Runner beans make their own so won't likely benefit much, but it certainly won't harm them.

Hi,Lindylou.

Seaweed feed contains the primary nutrients - nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium and some trace elements. You can use it on all your veggies including beans. I've found potatoes and toms seem to particularly like it.

Watered down you can also use it as a spray, it's good for foilage.
