NOTE: BioGreen strongly recommends avoiding the use of the following products in conjunction with Correct Planting Routine®: fungicides, synthetic soluble salt-based fertilizers, sulfur, polymer gels and fresh spent mushroom compost.
Ball & Burlap or Container-Grown: Set stock in planting hole and backfill up to 1/3 on root ball. Apply 1 lb. of product per caliper inch around the edges so it makes contact with the root ball and mixes with the backfill soil. Finish backfilling. Water until puddling occurs.
Trees and Shrubs: 1”-Caliper Bare-Root Stock – Soak roots in water, then dust with a generous handful of product. Next, place another generous handful in hole at planting time. Water to settle soil around roots. Note, one “generous handful” is equivalent to a ½ cup; 1 lb. will plant three to four 1”-caliper bare-roots.) When planting smaller bare-roots, adjust your use rates ac cordingly. While dusting roots, catch excess product to avoid waste.
Bed Plants: Annuals, Biennials & Perennials – Prior to tilling the soil, apply product at the rate of 10 lb. per 1,000 sq. ft. with a broadcast spreader. For small-scale plantings, apply 1 tablespoon in hole per plant (1” plug). Water to settle soil around roots. (1 lb. of product contains 50 tablespoons.)
Seeding: Apply product to prepared soil at the rate of 10 lb. per 1,000 sq. ft. (Follow seed planting instructions).
It is more cost-effective from a labor standpoint to use Correct Planting Routine® at transplant time. When used at planting time, Correct Planting Routine® is delivered directly into the root zone at the ideal rate of 1-lb. per caliper inch. However, this use rate decreases substantially due to the difficulty involved in getting product into an established plant site.
- Recently Planted Trees & Shrubs:
Using a 1” soil drill or probe, bore eight holes 6-8” deep around the perimeter of the root ball. Fill holes with product. Follow up with deep watering.
- Mature Trees & Shrubs:
Option 1: The most practical way to distribute Correct Planting Routine® into the feeder root system of a mature tree or shrub is through double core aeration beneath the entire drip line to trunk area (the more holes, the better). Apply product with a broadcast spreader at the rate of 10 lb. per 1,000 sq. ft. Follow up with deep watering.
Option 2: Using a 1” soil drill or probe, bore holes 6-8” deep per every foot in the area one foot outside of the drip line. Fill holes with product. Repeat this procedure, working one foot inside of the drip line. Follow up with deep watering.
- Bed Plantings & Turf: Top-dress plant bed with Correct Planting Routine® at the rate of 10 lb. per 1,000 sq. ft. Lightly work into the soil. Deeply water. For small plant beds, gently work one to two tablespoons of product around each plant. Water. Lawn Restoration – apply product at the rate of 10 lb. per 1,000 sq. ft. with a broadcast spreader.
What Are Mycorrhizae?
Mycorrhizae is a Greek Word for
Mycorrhizae are non-woody structures composed of both root and fungus tissue. Native to forest and prairie soils, they are also found in soils that have retained high fertility; for instance, older residential sites built upon rich layers of topsoil. When working in fertile soil, one will find networks of white hair-like fibers – these are mycorrhizae. Soils that have lost their mycorrhizae have lost their ability to support plant life. Mycorrhizae has become the landscape industry‘s “buzz word” because urban soils have become depleted by construction and chemical practices. Today’s technology now makes it possible for us to deliver mycorrhizae into the root zone as the primary step toward building soils that support our landscapes.
