Bone Meal Root Builder
A much less expensive option than RootGrow so it's a good option for established plants where the cost of RootGrow would be prohibitive. However, when planting new plants we would always recommend planting with Rootgrow and a secondary feed such as Bone Meal in order to help the plants establish.
Bone Meal is an organic slow release fertiliser 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.
