Seaweed as soil amendment

Mary emailed me and asked:
I understand that using seaweed in your garden helps the build the soil. How much seaweed do you use? And does the bromine in the seaweed help get rid of the bugs in turnip?
Now, the seashore is probably a four hour trip from here and I know nothing about seaweed. If any of you readers can answer this question, please do so in the comments. Mary and I would both appreciate it.
Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
