Rootgrow from Plantworks

What is Rootgrow?
Rootgrow contains a mixture of species of UK origin mycorrhizal fungi. These fungi are completely natural and are grown at our production facilities in Kent. Rootgrow also contains an inert clay carrier which acts as a substrate for the fungi to grow through and a few bio-additives which enhance mycorrhizal colonisation

Rootgrow is the best value plant treatment you will ever buy. With just one application at planting time, your plants will develop a huge secondary root system supplying nutrients and water for their entire lifetime.
Rootgrow has been developed from mycorrhizal fungi that is naturally occurring in the UK.
It is available in several forms so that all types of planting can benefit from it, such as when planting container plants, bare root plants and also when seeding.

Only one application required.

Rootgrow from Plantworks has been tried and tested by the RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) and hence has their logo on the packs

Why use Rootgrow?

Why use Rootgrow?

Plant roots in all soils have a relationship with micro-organisms and a very important sector are the mycorrhizal fungi.

When planting out the roots are put into an environment where there are often relatively few mycorrhizal fungi established. This can result in poor estabishment of new plants, especially when replacing plants in an area such as roses.

When there is an abundance of mycorrhizal fungi estblished around a root system white mycelium develop giving an appearance as seen in the picture on the right. This is extremely healthy for the growth of the plant and its roots.

Rootgrow's giving many beneffits including:

Better establishment and future growth of the plant.
Increased drought tolerance as it allows the roots to make better use of the soil moisture.
Increased uptake of nutrients in the soil.
Better uptake of fertilisers when applied after planting (the network of mycorrhizal fungi act like a net catching nutrients and preventing leaching, especially with natural fertilisers)
