Maxwell Mycological Mycorrmax Planting Compost 70L

Maxwell Mycological Mycorrmax is a premium soil conditioner and planting compost for trees, shrubs and bedding plants.

It is a non peat-based compost consisting of a blend of recycled green waste and fine composted bark producing a friable open compost ideal for the professional landscaper. Screened and graded, the compost is then blended with an organic fertiliser, bio-stimulants and mycorrhizae.

The neutral to slightly acid pH makes this compost ideal for most landscaping and reclamation projects, with the exception of acidic loving plants which require a low pH to thrive.

About Mycorrhizae

  • 90% of all the worlds' plants and grass roots have associations with mycorrhizae fungi.
  • Mycorrhizae fungi improve uptake of nutrients and water to trees, shrubs, turf and bedding plants.
  • Many man-made landscapes and preparations can reduce or eliminate these beneficial soil organisms - compaction, erosion, site preparation, removal of top soil etc.
  • Mycorrhizae fungi "make available" phosphorous, iron and other "tightly bound" nutrients.
  • Mycorrhizae fungi improves soil structure.
  • Humus is essential for a healthy soil.
