Deep Rootrainers are suitable for propagating plants which have deep fast growing roots, you can cultivate nearly all plants, trees, shrubs, herbaceous, fruit and vegetables; those that have deep fast growing roots such as sweet peas, beans etc will really benefit.
Reusable – can last for years especially good for: sweetpeas, runner beans, broad beans, French beans, sweetcorn and strawberries.
The 12cm deep cells open like a book for easy transplanting without roots disturbance. Grooves direct roots straight down. ‘Air-pruning’ systems prevent pot-bound plants
Contents: 32 cells (8 books), Tray: 36cm x 21cm x 12cm, 1 Lid
How to use:
Fold books in half and place one by one each book tightly together in the tray, then lightly dampen.
Using good multipurpose moist compost – pile compost over tray and brush it onto side and corner cells.
Give tray a bump to settle compost into the bottom of cells. Top-up if necessary.
Brush off any excess compost to reveal the cell tops.
Add a little water with a watering can fitted with a rose.
The first roots race down the special grooves and quickly emerge through the drainage holes. The tips die off naturally causing masses of side roots to develop higher in the cell. This results in a super root system all set to feed a perfect plant.
Rootrainers encourage optimum root formation; including strong roots; a fundamental requirement of healthy and successful growth. The rectangular shape of each plant cell provides a greater surface area and the grooves allow much more roots to develop on the outside of the plug.
