Product Summary

For trees, shrubs, roses, edibles. Rootgrow mycorrhizal fungi. RHS Gardeners Endorse rootgrow™. RHS gardeners find plants treated with rootgrow™: Have superior plant establishment with better natural vigour. Overcome replant problems more successfully. Have better developed root systems. Are better able to cope with conditions of drought. The benefits of mycorrhizal fungi are well documented. Plantworks and the RHS intend to work together in the future to expand upon this knowledge and to better understand how the application of mycorrhizal fungi will benefit specific groups of plants. Rootgrow™ is grown in the UK and contains: natural mineral carriers, species of UK origin arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and ectomycorrhizal fungi. Within 4 weeks many plants will grow a huge secondary root system which will support them for their lifetime. The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) the world's leading gardening charity is dedicated to advancing horticulture and promoting good gardening. Our goal is to help people who share a passion for plants, to encourage excellence in horticulture and inspire all those with an interest in gardening. The RHS gardeners recognise the importance of reducing dependence on chemical fertilisers and pesticides and acknowledge the many benefits of using UK origin mycorrhizal fungi in the garden.
