How to Use Root Stimulator When Planting

Root stimulators designed for plants, flowers and trees help promote strong root growth. Often debated by the gardening community, root stimulators claim to have essential nutrients that support the growth of existing plant roots, and stimulate the growth of new roots. Root stimulators are often used when plants, flowers or bare-root trees are transplanted. Always follow the instructions and guidelines for proper application.

Promote healthy root growth with root stimulators.

Step 1

Pour the root stimulator into a watering can and mix it with water according to the package ratio instructions.

Step 2

Plant the young plants in the ground or container according to their included specifications.

Step 3

Water the young plants, or newly transplanted plants with the root stimulator and water solution until the soil is thoroughly moist. Use the root stimulator very early in the growing season, when the plant's root development is in its most crucial and important stage.

Step 4

Fill a bucket with water, and add in enough root stimulator formula to make a diluted solution as stated on the package. Soak the bare roots of your trees, plants or shrubs overnight, or as stated on directions.
