Tree Planting Kit

Good root growth and support is vital for new trees until they get established. Trees are one of the costliest plants you’ll buy for your garden and will last longer than your lifetime, so get them off to the best possible start with our Tree Planting Kit.

We’ve put together a kit that’s delivered with your tree* so you can plant straight away with no risk to its delicate rootball.

Included is a 1.2m tree stake, a super-soft tie and Empathy rootgrow™, which includes Mycorrhizal Fungi to encourage enhanced root growth. (Each product can be bought separately with extras from the empathy range.)

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.

Please Note: Each of these products can be bought separately with extras from the empathy range.

One Tree Stake and Tie Kit - 1.2m Wind damage can kill young trees by snapping new, brittle roots, as they haven’t had time to anchor themselves into the ground. These are the roots that supply the plant with food and water, causing massive stress on the plant. This kit will give your tree all the support it needs while a strong, healthy root base spreads into surrounding soil.

The specially made, figure of eight super-soft trees ties gently support the trunk without damaging the bark, unlike cheaper versions. They allow slight swaying which encourages fibrous roots and a stronger overall system.

60g Empathy rootgrow™ Mycorrhizal Fungi

Mycorrhizal fungi are no longer a secret of professional gardeners. Mycorrhizae are fungi which live in a symbiotic (beneficial) relationship with plants. The fungi take sugars from the plants and in return, the plants get moisture and nutrients gathered by the fungal strands, which act as extensions to the root system.

By sprinkling a little Rootgrow onto the root system when planting, you can ensure fantastic root growth and the healthiest plant possible - naturally.

Benefits include better water and nutrient uptake and enhanced flowering and cropping. It’s a must for the organic gardener, as plants will survive better in drought and are less likely to fall victim to pests and diseases.

Our quick video will give you a better understanding of what Mycorrhizal fungi is and how it can help your plant.

The Kit Contains:

  • One Tree Stake and Tie Kit - 1.2m
