Ordered some Rootgrow with two Hazel trees. I find mycorrhizal fungi helpful for getting trees and other plants going but one of the trees is struggling after a couple of months. So, hard to tell whether the Rootgrow has provided enough help.

Used with my bare root apple tree and currant bushes to get them off to a quick start!

I have used this with most of my bare root trees and have always had very successful results with very few failures over the years. My trees always seem to do much better than my neighbors, and I put it down to this product.

All 9 plants received last autumn and planted with root grow seem to be thriving. Excellent service from Blackmoor.
What are mycorrhizal fungi?
Mycorrhizas are beneficial fungi growing in association with plant roots, and exist by taking sugars from plants in exchange for moisture and nutrients gathered from the soil by the fungal strands.
The mycorrhizas greatly increase the absorptive area of a plant, acting as extensions to the root system. Phosphorus is often in very short supply in natural soils. When phosphorus is present in insoluble forms it would require a vast root system for a plant to meet its phosphorus requirements unaided. It is therefore thought that mycorrhizas are crucial in gathering this element in uncultivated soils. Phosphorus-rich fertilisers are widely used in cultivated ground and not only reduce the need for this activity but are thought to actually suppress the mycorrhizas. For this reason it is best not to use phosphorous rich fertilisers in conjunction with mycorrhizal fungi.
Neither fungi nor plants could survive in many uncultivated situations without this mutually beneficial arrangement.
