Bestselling Rootgrow Mycorhizal Fungi

Planting and aftercare products

In this section, we show 4 products that we strongly recommend - RootGrow, Bonemeal Root Builder, Seaweed Bio-Stimulant and Afterplant Evergreen Bio-active fertiliser. All of these products can be used individually or together.

Which products should I use for my plants?

Rootgrow Mycorrhizal Fungi - Ideal for application during planting. We recommend Rootgrow for all planting projects. It ensures a well-established root system, better drought tolerance, healthier growth and superior establishment. We consider this a must, as do the Royal Horticultural Society.

Bonemeal Root Builder - Ideal for application during planting and for aftercare. An organic, slow release fertiliser which can be used instead of Rootgrow for budget planting, or (more commonly) as a top-dressing in the Spring.

Seaweed bio-stimulant - Ideal for application as an aftercare product. This feed works particularly well in conjunction with Rootgrow as the liquid seaweed can speed up the mycorrhizal colonisation by up to 60%

Afterplant Evergreen Bio-Active Fertiliser - Ideal for application as an aftercare product for ervergreens. Complementing the use of Rootgrow as a planting aid, Afterplant is the perfect companion to evergreen plants, both ground and container grown


How much will I need?

RootGrowThis is an organic mycorrhizal (pronounced my-cor-y-zal) fungi - a friendly fungi for plants which greatly promotes healthy growth.

It is the first plant or soil treatment to be licensed by The Royal Horticultural Society and is used by BBC's Gardeners World. The RHS are clearly cautious that people don't oversell the benefits but they have authorised that the following can be claimed for this superb product

    Superior plant establishment with triple the growth rate*
    Overcome re-plant problems more successfully with fewer losses
    Have better developed root systems that do not out-grow their site
    Increased flower and fruit production
    Are better able to cope with conditions of drought

*compared to untreated plants.

A single application of Rootgrow will support a plant for its entire lifetime.

All packs of Rootgrow other than the 150g pack, contain a gel product which enables you to dilute the Rootgrow in water (to make a wallpaper type consistency) so that you can dip bare roots to obtain maximum usage. The 150g pack can be used on bare roots but there is no gel included in the pack so the usage is not as high. If you need any help to work out which pack to use, please give us a call.

The 2.5 litre tub is approx the same price as 5 x 360g packs but contains almost 7 times the quantity so if you need more than 5 packs, go for the tub instead. In just the same way, the 1 KG sachet is very good value compared with the smaller sachets. RootGrow has a fairly long shelf life (up to a year) and can be used on almost all new planting. All packs are re-sealable and the tub has a good strong lid which keeps the product dry.

Our automated website discounts shown below apply to the products in this section too - which helps a lot as RootGrow is an expensive (but well worth it!) product.

Bone Meal Root Builder by Westland

How much will I need?


Bone Meal Root Builder is much less expensive than RootGrow so it's a good option where the cost of RootGrow would be prohibitive.

It's an organic slow release fertilizer which enriches the soil encouraging strong and healthy root growth. It's excellent used at the time of planting and we also recommend it as a top dressing in Spring for established hedges - even hedges need to be fed!

Unlike RootGrow, which is applied to the roots of the plants, Bone Meal should be mixed through the top soil from the planting hole before re-filling ie not put in direct contact with the roots.

There is a usage chart at the bottom of this page to help you work out how many packs you'll need but roughly a 1.5kg pack is sufficient for 20-25 linear metres of hedging, but remember to double the quantity you order if you're planting in a double staggered row.

Do not use Bone Meal where cattle, sheep, goats and deer have access.

Seaweed bio-stimulant

How much will I need?


This is a terrific product for all newly planted hedging, particularly bare root hedging. It's a fertiliser, proven effective in trials, that improves root development through the leaves rather than directly via the roots.

All you do is dilute it in a watering can and water it onto the new foliage that emerges in late spring and early summer to ensure excellent establishment and root development. If you have too long a stretch of hedging to carry a watering can back and forward to the hedge we suggest you take a hose to the hedge and use the hose to re-fill the watering can containing the appropriate dosage of seaweed bio-stimulant.

We always strongly advise the use of Rootgrow, however this Seaweed bio-stimulant makes a cost effective alternative.

Afterplant Evergreen Bio-Active Fertiliser

How much will I need?


Afterplant Evergreen is a Bo-active fertiliser containing rootgrow, seaweed and nitrogen-fixing bacteria. It’s the ideal complementing product to Rootgrow (but can not be used as an alternative). Perfect for keeping your evergreens fresh, lush and green Afterplant can be used on hedging, topiary and other evergreen garden plants such as Rhododendrons to keep them looking tip-top and encourage a healthy root system.

For plants in the ground apply as a top dressing, lightly working into the top layer of soil and watering in. 1 good handful (25g) per m2 is ideal, meaning one 1kg bag will cover 40m2 i.e. a hedge 40m long if the bed is 1 metre deep (from front to back).

For pot grown plants (such as topiary) remove the top few inches of soil, replace with fresh compost and 1 or 2 (25g-50g) handfuls of Afterplant.

Usage Chart

For use when planting a new hedge - remember usage is approximate as root sizes will vary by species

Note: 150g size Rootgrow does not contain gel sachet and can only be used as a granule. For the best coverage with bare roots select 360g or larger - which all contain gel sachets.
