Root Grow

Only one treatment of Rootgrow is needed to support the plant for its entire lifetime. All Rootgrow products can be sprinkled into the planting hole, however, those that come with gel sachets (360g packs and larger) can be mixed together to form a paste. Bare root plants can then be dipped into the mixture giving a more cost-effective usage rate.We strongly recommend planting with Rootgrow, however there are certain types of plants that benefit more than others, such as: flowering or fruiting hedging; evergreen species (it takes more effort to make an evergreen leaf than a deciduous leaf) and tall pot grown plants when the root to shoot ratio is off balance. Rootgrow can be applied in a granule form, to sprinkle into the planting hole, or made into a gel, ideal for dipping bare roots. Except for the 150g packet, which is granule only, all of the Rootgrow sizes can be made into a gel formula or sprinkled. We recommend using the gel method for bare roots, as the paste will go much further and be more cost effective than granules. Use the table below to calculate how much Rootgrow you’ll need, note that we have based this table on the use of the gel for bare roots and granules for all others. Usage is approximate as root sizes vary by species.Two types of root systems: (left) the fibrous roots of grass and (right) the fleshy taproot of a sugar beet.aerial roots, either pass for some distance through the air before reaching the soil or remain hanging in the air. Some of these, such as those seen in corn (maize), screw pine, and banyan, eventually assist in supporting the plant in the soil. In many

region of elongation, which lies just above the meristematic region. It is in the region of elongation that growth in length occurs. Above this elongation zone lies the region of maturation, where the primary tissues of the root mature, completing the process of cell differentiation that actually begins in the upper portion of the meristematic region.The shoot apical meristem of Hypericum uralum (left) appears at the topmost aspect of the stem. Immediately behind the apical meristem are three regions of primary meristematic tissues. The root apical meristem (right) appears immediately behind the protective root cap. Three primary meristems are clearly visible just behind the apical meristem. cortex conducts water and dissolved minerals across the root from the epidermis to the vascular cylinder, whence it is transported to the rest of the plant. The cortex also stores food transported downward from the leaves through the vascular tissues. The innermost layer of the cortex usually consists of a tightly packed layer of cells, called theMycorrhizal fungi dramatically increase the availability of soil nutrients that roots can absorb, and form a protective jacket over the little feeding roots against disease and dryness. In return, the growing roots provide sugars and a way for the fungi to penetrate soil, while the tree above provides summer shade and mulch every Autumn, creating the underground conditions that fungi love. It's a full on symbiotic relationship that greatly improves the growth and survival of your plants, whilst improving the quality of your soil. It makes the biggest difference in poor soils, where water retention is low. (Source: www.ashridgetrees.co.uk)
