Good news for lily growers!
Environmental experts in the UK have developed a special plant
food for lilies that also clarifies pond water and keeps it free
from algae. FEED-IT is a specially formulated mixture of plant
nutrients to aid the growth and development of lilies and
Macrophytes while suppressing the growth of algae. The formula
combines special food for lilies with extract of barley straw that
keeps algae from utilizing their own nutrients in pond water.
FEED-IT provides a natural, non-toxic
way to rid ponds of the nuisance algae that grows on precious
lilies and marginal plants, suffocating the leaves and causing an
unsightly mess. The nutrient complex in FEED-IT stimulates the
growth of healthy lilies, which provide shade and coverage of the
pond surface, discouraging further algal growth.
Barley straw has been used for decades
in the UK for pond clarity. Recently, a UK water company
commissioned the development of a liquid extract of barley straw
that has advantages over the straw itself:
It begins to act immediately with no
need to wait for the straw to decompose.
There is no messy residue to remove
The extract is less expensive
overall than the straw.
Eco-Ponds USA is now importing FEED-IT
and an entire line of ‘IT’ all natural pond products for
distribution in the US market. This is the first season, and you
can be the first to experience the advantages of this new product
in the lily market.
