Seaweed goes limb when damp hence its use in predicting rain.

Seaweed is a source of iodine which was once used as a disenfectant, it is also a valuable soil conditioner and source of potash, I have also used it as a mulch to prevent weeds growing.

It has many useful properties, and French scientists are looking into its use in cancer treatment.

They also have some of the most ammusing Latin names ever, Canaliculata, being one particular example. My personal favourite is Fucus Vesiculosis. Aplogies for my spelling by the way, was a fair few years since I had to quote latin!
P.S I blame my lecturer for giving me a bizarre, if not sad love for these little blighters.
