RHS Empathy After Plant - Rose

AFTER PLANT ROSE FOOD is specifically formulated for roses, containing essential nutrients, biologically active mycorrhizal fungi and beneficial bacteria that help to build soil fertility to support healthy growth and improve flowering

The nutrients in Empathy AFTER PLANT ROSE FOOD have been scientifically selected and balanced to support the natural symbiosis between the treated plant rootgrow™ mycorrhizal fungi and essential soil bacteria.

The product is in dry granule formulation and ideal as an early season treatment at the first signs of growth in spring. Apply a second feed in summer after the first flush of flowers and throughout the growing season.

Kick-start soil fertility during establishment of your roses and increase nutrient uptake throughout their life to promote vibrant, healthy blooms.

Empathy After Plant Rose is an organic plant food enriched with Rootgrow mycorrhizal fungi and beneficial bacteria. It provides all the nutrients hungry plants need, and boosts soil biology to create better growing conditions in the long term.

Specially formulated for roses, the food contains nitrogen fixing bacteria that increase nitrogen flow into the plant and synthesise hormones to stimulate healthy growth.

The addition of Rootgrow helps extend the rose’s root system, promoting better uptake of nutrients and water for the length of the rose's life. Sprinkle liberally for prize-winning roses.

How does Rootgrow work?

Rootgrow mycorrhizal fungi bond to a plant’s roots, effectively becoming part of its root system. They grow rapidly in search of water and nutrients, and as they're finer than the plant's coarse roots, they're better at reaching them - helping plants thrive in even difficult soils.

In poor sandy soil, they track down scarce nutrients and water, and in dense clay soil they unlock nutrients, acting like a clay breaker. They're great at hunting down phosphorus and potassium for flowering and fruiting, but also thrive on finding trace elements. And they hold onto water like a sponge, giving your plants far better drought tolerance.

Use 1-2 handfuls (25-50g) per rose bush apply evenly around the base, working gently into the topsoil and water well.

Apply in spring at the first sign of new growth. Apply a second feed in summer after the first flush of flowers. For the best results Empathy AFTER PLANT ROSE FOOD should be used within one year from opening.

Empathy AFTER PLANT ROSE FOOD is NOT a substitute for using rootgrow™ at time of planting. For new plantings, or in poor soil conditions, we recommend using pure rootgrow™ mycorrhizal fungi applied close to the plant’s roots.

Each 1kg pack will treat up to 40 roses with one application.
