TREES AND SHRUBS - RADIAL TRENCHING

General Information

PHC Vertimulch is a combination inoculant containing mycorrhizal fungi (both Ecto- and VAM) and beneficial rhizosphere bacteria in a matrix of organic soil amendments and includes Terra-Sorb hydrogels for improved water management. It is formulated for application using standard earth auger equipment, and is used in vertical mulching and root zone treatment of trees and shrubs. PHC Vertimulch is a great treatment for trees suffering from environmental stress or those that are in decline. Vertimulch contains Myconate which stimulates native and inoculated VAM fungal growth and colonization of roots.

PHC Vertimulch contains mycorrhizal fungi that can:

- Improve absorption of water and minerals from the soil

- Help plants mitigate adverse environmental stressors such as drought, salinity, and extremes of soil pH

PHC Vertimulch also introduces beneficial rhizosphere bacteria that improve soil fertility by:

- Fixing atmospheric nitrogen

- Converting insoluble mineral phosphorus to soluble phosphates

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

TREES AND SHRUBS - RADIAL TRENCHING

Mix PHC Vertimulch with mulch or soil at a rate of 3 ounces (1 scoop) per square foot of trench. For example, for a 4 inch wide trench, 3 ounce of Vertimulch would treat 1 linear yard of trench. For wider or narrower trenches, adjust rate accordingly based on square foot coverage of the trench.
