Key Benefits of Planting with RootGrow

RootGrow enhances a plant's root system so a newly planted plant:
  • Finds more food, finds more water.
  • Needs less fertilizers.
  • Establishes quicker and reduces failure rates.
  • Has increased tolerance to drought and adverse soil conditions.
These "friendly" mycorrhizal fungi are completely natural and organic and native to UK soils.How to use RootGrowThe mycorrhizal fungi granules need to come into direct contact with the plant's roots.There are two methods of application, as a dry granule for container grown plants and as a root dip for bare root plants.Pot/Container Grown PlantsA good rule of thumb is to look at the bottom of the pot to be treated as you will need enough rootgrow granules to lightly cover this area. To do this, dig a hole to the correct depth then lightly sprinkle the bottom of the planting hole with rootgrow and plant the plant directly onto the granules.For very small plants from the cell grown range (marked Cg) again the principle of getting the granules into contact with the roots is important. Water the plants and then roll the root plug onto a saucer of granules and whatever sticks should be enough.For seed trays mix rootgrow 1:19 with the compost. As a guide this table shows how many plants the different packs of RootGrow will treat.

Bare-Rooted PlantsTo treat bare root plants (Shown as Br, Tr or Sd in the catalogue) the most economical and effective way is to make up RootGrow as a dipping gel. You can use the non-gel mix on bare-rooted plants by sprinkling it on the roots.For plants with very large roots it may only be necessary to dip the lower half of the roots. For plants with very small roots it is advisable to dip the whole root.The amount of RootGrow you need depends on the root size. As a guide this table shows how many plants the different packs of RootGrow will treat.
