Subject: Myke for Roses?

I am planting some David Austin roses and am considering using the new Myke product. I bought the type for trees & shrubs, but there is no reference to roses. (I also bought the type for perennials & annuals).I've checked the info on the web site but can't find any info on roses. Does anyone know if this product is suitable for roses? By the way, thanks to those who referred me to Humber Nurseries. A gardener's paradise! I found everything I was looking for, and then some! Thanks.

Roses are Endo Mycorrhizae compatible plants so; Myke Annual and Perennial will colonize them. With the use of Myke you will have a better survival rate because the root system will develop faster and also they will produce more flowers because the plant will uptake nutrients and water more efficiently.

Thanks, Luc. I planted the roses yesterday using the Myke Annual & Perennual product. (Today we have snow and rain - such are Ontario springs!)

What is MYKE? I haven't heard of it.

I have 18 year old grape vines, which I mulch regularly. If I were to purchase Myke for the vines, would I need to dig in, or sprinkle on top.

Aileen, as I understand it, Myke is a product to be used at the time of planting, or it can be dug in around recently planted material. I don't think it does much for established plants.

You are right when you say that it better to use Myke when transplanting because the product have to be in contact with the roots to colonize them. But you can also sprinkle the product on the ground for a existing vegetable, annual or perennial bed or a newly planted tree or shrub.

If you have an 18 years old plant there is a good chance that the plant found natural mycorrhizae in the soil.

I would say that after 5 or 6 years there is no real need to ad Myke to a tree.

I forgot to say that if you sprinkle Myke on top of the ground you have to work it down in the soil a little bit just to make sure it get in contact with roots
