Quick Overview

Details

MYKE® Tree and Shrub contains mycorrhizae on a natural medium coarse granulated carrier (vermiculite, perlite and peat) efficient on both broad-leaf trees and evergreens. It contains no chemical additives.

Benefits of using MYKE:

  • It's natural
  • Increases rapid development of the root system
  • Ensures a better recovery and survival after transplant
  • Increases absorption of water and nutrients

How to use MYKE:

  • Choose appropriate site for species according to soil humidity. Turn over soil
  • Apply a layer of MYKE® Tree and Shrub to the walls of the hole and root ball so that new roots are in contact with the product
  • Remove plant from container or covering, and make sure not to harm roots. Place the root ball in the hole so that the top comes square with the ground
  • Cover with soil, pack down lightly, and water

Mycorrhizal fungi have occurred naturally in the soil for 400 million years. They form a close symbiotic relationship with plant roots. They are called mycorrhizae (from the Greek "mukés", meaning fungus, and "rhiza," meaning roots). However, in most soils that have been disturbed by residential construction, or intensive cropping practices with applications of fertilizers containing pesticides and other chemical products, the mycorrhizae content has considerably diminished, and has become insufficient to significantly enhance plant growth. When mycorrhizal fungi colonize the plant's root system, they create a network that increases the plant's capacity to absorb more water and nutrients such as phosphorus, copper and zinc. This process in turn enhances growth and favors rapid development of roots and plants.

Note: Blueberries and rhododendrons cannot be colonized by the fungus in MYKE® Tree and Shrub.
