Rootgrow gel is designed to treat bare rooted plants such as hedging, fruit canes, trees and shrubs. It's recommended by the RHS. 

All roots need mycorrhizal fungi, which act as a secondary root system in the soil to reach nutrients. Mycorrhizal fungi can be used to boost growth in newly planted trees and hedges. Using Rootgrow speeds up the process of the fungi growth resulting in stronger plants that can establish more quickly. It's a great biological treatment.

The benefits:
Increased phosphorus uptake
Significantly improved drought resistance
No need for chemical fertilisers
Better and quicker establishment

Rootgrow gel is very easy to apply (instructions are on the packet):

  1. Take a large bucket and fill with 4L of water.
  2. Sprinkle the contents of the gel powder sachet into the water and stir well.
  3. Leave for 5 minutes, add the dry rootgrow granules and stir well (the granules should be suspended evenly throughout the thick liquid).
  4. Dip the plant roots into the solution ensuring even coverage.
  5. Lift the plants out, allow the excess to drain back in to the bucket and plant immediately.

We sell Rootgrow gel online in 360g and 1kg sachets, although bigger sizes are available on request.
