We were looking for a better inoculant, one that works on more than just legumes, and we found it! Mycorrhiza is a beneficial fungus that lives on the roots of your plants. It makes little threads that transport water and nutrients to the roots. When we used it on our herbs, it had about a 25-50% increase in germination, and it helped reduce our need to water. We are convinced! Just follow the directions and you'll have healthier starts and plants.
