This university-tested beneficial fungus forms a symbiotic bond with plant roots, protecting them from soil pathogens all season long. Add it to potting soil or mix with water to use as a drench.

          This product is very easy to prepare & use. I mixed it one gallon at a time in a clean watering can & drenched the soil where I wanted to plant pole bean seeds. Previous seedings had resulted in poor germination or seedlings that sickened & died soon after germinating. Honestly, I can't think of a downside.

                I have never been able to grow cucumbers in my poor soil. This season I tried again with two transplants. One died and the other was looking like it wanted to. I drenched the soil around the small, limp, cucumber plant with Root Shield and a week later it has healthy new growth and flowers.

                    Comments about Root Shield, 4 Oz.:

                    I have used this on seedlings (orchid seedlings), they can be difficult... But with this product, it helps prevent damping-off, by a land-slide! I love this stuff! Last year, when I took my orchids outside, with the heat/humidity, I lost a few orchids to root rot, and damping off. This year, I started using RootShield in the spring, and (so far, here in the end of July) I haven't lost anything... This stuf helps a lot! I am ordering some more right now!

                    As for the Trichoderma fungus (the species in RootShield) lasting, reproducing, and being there the next spring... Unless your winter temps stay above 50°F, it will not survive for the next spring.

                      It's been two weeks and my tomato plants have revived a bit. I made 5 gal sprinkler can full and it WAS hard to distribute it according to directions. If it works, it will be worth the price.
