Endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society - It is in the specific case of planting bare root trees that the RHS recommends the use of rootgrow based on over a decade of experience in using rootgrow and seeing the benefits.


The benefits of Rootgrow™ mycorrhizal fungi


- Better and more balanced growth
- Healthier and more dense root system with hugely increased ability to uptake nutrients from the soil 
- More abundant flowers and fruit
- Reduced need for synthetic or chemical fertilisers
- Higher resistance to drought
- Reduced stress during transplanting
- Stabilisation of surface
- Improved resistance to soil pathogenes and environmental stress


Rootgrow contains a mixture of species of UK origin mycorrhizal fungi.


Mycorrhizal fungi are a remarkable group of organisms that have been benefiting plants for at least 500 million years. These fungi are living organisms and will live with the plant, sourcing a continued nutrient supply for its entire lifetime – a truly sustainable plant nutrition solution. In exchange the plant provides carbon and sugars to the fungi. Not unsurprisingly, 90% of all land plants employ this relationship to enhance their own root system’s capacity to deliver nutrients.


How to Use Rootgrow™:


1. Fill a large bucket with 4L water
2. Sprinkle the contents of the gel powder sachet into the water and stir well
3. Leave for 5 minutes then 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 and allow the excess to drain back in to the bucket and plant immediately.

Delivery

Our bare root plants and cuttings are delivered between November and May (specific dates cannot be guaranteed) but we do encourage early planting for the best results.

Most orders are dispatched within 3-5 working days where stocks are available. If they are not available at the time of order you will be notified and an alternative delivery date discussed with you.We ship to mainland UK and the Isle of Wight (although surcharges may be incurred in some more remote areas). Our orders are generally sent out using a national courier but for local deliveries, we may use our own couriers. Orders can also be collected from the nursery by prior appointment and we are more than happy for you to do this if you prefer.

Our standard delivery charge is £15 plus VAT. This is for a next day delivery service in areas where this is available (i.e. mainland UK). For areas outside mainland UK, such as northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Scottish islands and mainland Europe, we can often offer delivery but will need to confirm the costs of these with you, so please call us to discuss on 01404 811229.  

There's usually no need to wait in for a standard delivery, our couriers will leave it in a safe place for you. If there is somewhere in particular you would like it left, please let us know at the time of ordering. For taller plants or a larger volume (particularly root ball trees), a pallet may be required. We will let you know at the time of your order as this will usually incur an additional fee. 

On arrival you should try to plant as soon as possible but, if the weather makes this impossible, cuttings will remain viable somewhere cold for 4 weeks. A cold shed or outside is fine but if the weather turns warm then put them into a fridge if possible. If you are unable to plant the rooted trees within ten days of arrival then we suggest that you unpack the bale and cover the roots with soil in a shallow trench to keep them moist.
