Vaminoc Mycorrhizal Fungi - Mycorrhizal fungi are naturally occuring beneficial soil fungi, which colonize the roots of plant and are essential for healthy plants. By adding these Mycorrhizal Fungi when seed sowing, laying a lawn or planting, a huge secondary root system of fungi will develop along side the plants own roots, which will supply nutrients and water to the plant for its entire lifetime. The Royal Horticultural Society recognise the importance of reducing our use of chemical fertilisers and acknowledge the benefits of using Mycorrhizal Fungi in the garden. Mycorrhizal Fungi fungi are supplied as granules which are either sprinkled in the planting hole before planting trees, roses or shrubs or added to potting compost when sowing seeds. N.B. For the 1st time Mycorrhizal Fungi can also be used to treat lawns.
Vaminoc Mycorrhizal Fungi - Adding fungi at the time of sowing / planting will benefit the plants, because the fungi's roots (pictured left - the fine white root system of the fungi around the plants own roots) are very efficient at extracting phosphates, water and minerals from the soil, which it transfers to the plants. Mycorrhizal Fungi act like a permanent fertiliser, which results in more roots, so the plants grow faster (see pictures), vegetable yields increase and better plants have better drought and disease tolerance. You should also use Vaminoc Mycorrhizal Fungi when planting roses as it helps them to establish and to produce a good show of flowers. Mycorrhizal fungi will enable plants to establish and thrive even in difficult soils. In poor sandy soils the mycorrhizal fungi will be able to find scarce nutrients and hold onto water. In clay soils these fungi unlock nutrients -acting like a clay breaker.
Vaminoc Mycorrhizal Fungi - It is very important that the granules come into direct contact with the plant roots :-
- Planting trees, roses and shrubs - Sprinkle a teaspoon in the planting hole before planting trees, roses or shrubs. Place the plant in the hole directly on top of the granules. Backfill as normal with compost or soil.
- Sowing seeds - Add 25g per sqm to the compost before sowing seeds. This will lead to much stronger root production and stronger plants.
- Applying to an established lawn - Spike the lawn and apply 20g per sqm before brushing into the holes. Results in denser grass and helps lawns recover from stress.
- Laying a new lawn - Apply 20g per sqm to the soil BEFORE laying turf or seeding. This will lead to rapid establishment and better anchorage of the lawn.
How to use Vaminoc when sowing grass seed - We used Vaminoc when we wanted to re-seed a bank with grass - this is how we prepared the area and applied the Vaminoc. Knock down the soil to produce a level seed bed. If possible do this 10-14 days before you sow the grass seed to allow any weeds to germinate. Now hoe the weeds and then firm the soil using your feet. Rake the soil level and apply Vaminoc at the rate of 20g per square metre, raking it in lightly. Now sow the grass seed taking care to apply evenly over the surface of the soil. Again rake in lightly and then water.
