Empathy Biological range
Science & Manufacture
Empathy, so much more than just gardening products. Supported by a science team embracing mycologists, bacteriologist and soil scientist we strive to bring the best of nature’s beneficial biology in support of all forms of ‘growing’. All our mycorrhizal fungi and beneficial bacteria products are manufactured, quality assured and packaged for delivery by our highly qualified team, in our research and production facilities at the Kent Science park.
Mycorrhizal fungi has become a planting essential thanks to its incredible abilities to create a secondary root system, supporting plants and trees throughout their lifetime, helping them to grow stronger and healthier.
Once added at the point of planting our clever Rootgrow™ Mycorrhizal Fungi attaches itself to the plants’ roots and grows outward, searching for nutrients and water to feed them, helping to increase their tolerance to drought and adverse soil conditions.
The fungi provide long-term plant health as it has the ability to transport nutrients and water, reducing the need for chemical fertilisers. It also supports different growth stages of plants and, through its underground root network, these friendly fungi can connect with plants nearby and stimulate the plants’ own natural defence mechanism.
Endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society rootgrow™ is used widely by RHS gardeners thanks to its ability to establish plants with greater vigour, produce better-developed root systems for more resilient plants. What the quick video below to exactly how it works.
