This is a general-purpose inoculant for all endomycorrhizal-dependent plants, including most vegetables, grapes, fruit trees, berries, turfgrass, and flowers.
This product is water soluble. It can be dusted on transplant roots, blended into potting soils, worked into soil before seeding, or scattered on lawns and flower beds. Use at the beginning of the season for annual plants and at planting for perennial plants. One inoculation is all that is required for permanent plantings.
