Can Seaweed Be Used To Cover A Soaker Hose And Does It Make A Good Mulch

Question From: Fleming Island, Florida, United States
Q: hi I was eriting to you already a week ago. would be so grateful to get a reply... Can I use seaweed as a mulch to cover my soaker hose or is there the danger that the salt in the weed will damage the hose after a while? thanks a lot PS. I had to put in a us zipcode to submit but I am actually located in Jamaica at the moment...

A: Sorry for the delay, I was on vacation and I do not take my computer with me when I want and need a time out. The seaweed will make good mulch but you will need to rinse off the salt or it will damage your plants.  Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
