PlantWorks: Biofertilisers – The new generation


Over many years the team at PlantWorks Ltd have educated UK gardeners to the value of mycorrhizal fungi in the form of rootgrowTM, more recently we have introduced beneficial soil bacteria into our ranges, these microbes are adopted from our extensive research into increasing nutrient use efficiency in plants for farming and in food production. More frequently growers are referring to these products as biofertilisers which defines a new method to deliver plant nutrition.


Biofertiliser is used to define a product that: Contains living microorganisms which, when applied to seeds, plant surfaces, or soil, colonise the rhizosphere to improve nutrient use efficiency (NUE), plant health, establishment, and growth.


Culturally, gardeners are moving away from traditional chemical feeds and seeking out alternatives for effective plant nutrition. – The empathy range is the solution.

BIOFERTILISER – Acer & Olive Natural Plant Feeds 1KG


The natural ingredients within BIOFERTILISER for ACERS and OLIVE TREES has been carefully selected and blended to give plants the nutrients they need while encouraging and supporting the development of the mycorrhizal fungi and beneficial soil bacteria. Seaweed extracts supply plant growth hormones to stimulate top growth and root development. Alfalfa provides a natural source of plant derived nitrogen for healthy foliage. Sulphate of potash, a naturally occurring mineral form of potassium, encourages strong budding and flowering.


Organic, free from peat and animal derivatives, the microbes inside will improve compost performance making this perfect for use with peat free compost.


Carrying the RHS endorsement with Empathy’s striking white livery, the packaging is also recyclable with carrier bags at your local supermarket.


Compost Improver – Launching Spring 2024 (available for Preseason)

Growing in peat-free compost can be difficult given its lack of essential microorganisms. Our new bio-active Compost Improver provides the solution. Infused with beneficial bacteria, this blend is specifically designed to address peat-free compost challenges. The living micro-organisms inside which, when applied to seeds, plant surfaces or soil, colonise the rhizosphere to improve nutrient use efficiency, plant health, establishment, and growth.


rootgrow™ mycorrhizal fungi 

The ultimate BIOFERTILISER rootgrow™ mycorrhizal fungi can be used all year round, one application per plant is all that is needed and the clever fungi will provide a lifetime of benefits to plants, shrubs, trees and even vegetables. The completely natural formula is one of the most cost effective plant support products available thanks to its ability to increase nutrient and water uptake by forming a highly efficient secondary

root system.
