Empathy After Plant is an all purpose, organic plant food with added rootgrow™ mycorrhizal fungi. This product is designed to kick start soil fertility during establishment, using nutrients and additives that will actively encourage the natural symbiosis between the plant, mycorrhizal fungi and essential soil bacteria that stimulates healthy plant growth.

Trees and shrubs establish far quicker with better early growth when using Afterplant Tree and Shrub and is endorsed by RHS gardeners and is recommended in their tree planting guidelines

After Plant is safe and easy to use and can be applied anytime during the active growing season as a top dress or tonic to help establishing plants. Suitable for use for plants in the ground and container grown.

For Best Results pure Rootgrow™ should also be applied at the time of planting.

Please Note: If you order this product along with a plant or tree that is available at a later date, this product will be delivered at the same time.

What does rootgrow™ do?

Rootgrow has become a planting essential for professional and amature gardeners alike who want to ensure that their plants get off to the best start possible. Sprinkle a little when planting to ensure fantastic root growth and all the benefits that come with it.

For bigger, healthier and more vibrant plants, start them off with rootgrow™ and watch the symbiotic relationship of fungi and root system result in beautiful flowers and foliage year after year.


  • Plants in ground: Apply 1-2 handfuls around the base of the plant, lightly work into the soil and water well. For larger established plants, apply 2 handfuls per m of the canopy of the tree.
  • Container plants: Apply 2-3 handfuls per plant twice a yearly. We recommend that once per year the top 5-10cm of soil are removed from the pot and replaced with fresh compost. Add 1-2 handfuls when replacing the compost to keep your plants in prime condition.

Supported by the Royal Horticultural Society

RHS Gardeners endorse rootgrow™ because rootgrow™ treated plants establish better with greater vigour, replant more successfully, have better developed root systems and cope better with drought conditions.
