    I have used this product for some years now on many items ( fruit trees , roses, bedding etc. etc) and have always been left with the impression that it is truly beneficial. I am aware that it is endorsed by the RHS. Is any member of this forum aware of any confirmation from them as to the product's proven qualities?. I would love to know Iin order that I may reply to many of my sceptical acquaintances who consider I am easily hoodwinked.

     I haven't used it much, but having read around the subject the idea makes a lot of sense. Certainly conifer seedlings that I transplant from within my garden do better than bought in plants. It fits in well with my organic low input approach as fertilisers appear to have a detrimental effect on the fungi.

    Nigel and poppikin Thank you very much for your most valuable replies. I feel much better able to confront those sceptic acquaintances of mine. I was particularly interested in the point regarding the effect fertilizer can have on the fungi. I always learn something from this forum. Thanks again

    Dug this link out of the archive, I found it quite interesting when I first used Rootgrow a year ago.
