GMG's Friday Find: The Secret Ingredient for Perfect Soil

Mycorrhizae is not just hard to pronounce, it's also not a secret. It is a fungus that grows in association with the roots of a plant in a friendly, helpful manner, and this has been occurring for more than 400-million years!

These fungi are a vital component of soil's chemistry and helps to boost the development of the root system and its capacity to absorb water, nutrients and minerals.  Unfortunately, some activities like erosion, tillage, topsoil removal, and construction can deplete naturally occurring mycorrhizae.

What does this mean to the average gardener? Now you can enhance the roots of your plants and grow healthier, stronger plants by using the all-natural, beneficial MycoActive organisms (mycorrhizae) found in PRO-MIX®  consumer growing mixes.  Three new case studies have proven that with MycoActive you can achieve considerably more yield as seen in this chart:
