Hello and thank you for using Root Rescue Transplanter


"The all-natural plant starter – for life"

Root Rescue’s Transplanter puts life back into soil – but not all soil types are the same. Poorly draining heavy clay soils and free-draining sandy or loamy soils require different planting techniques. Be sure to ask a nursery professional at your garden centre about the best way to plant in the soil type in your yard. Once you have that advice, you’re ready to go. Transplanter works in all soil types.


Safe and easy to use, Transplanter is recommended whenever you plant new trees, shrubs, evergreens, or perennials. Mixing is simple; add 1 teaspoon of powder to a 2 gallon watering can – fill it up with water. Or for bigger jobs; add 1 tablespoon of powder to a 5 gallon Pail - and you’re ready to go. If you leave the solution standing for more than 5 minutes – simply give it a quick stir before applying.

For more information on Root Rescue Transplanter, including a list of Mycorrhizal Partnerships by Plant, our Dosage + Cost Calculator, and much more, check out our Free Technical Support Documents section.

When planting a container grown plant, carefully remove it from the pot and place it in the planting hole. If there are any roots circling around the root ball – be sure to open them up and spread them out – this will give the roots a chance to move out into the new soil. Apply the Transplanter solution to the roots. Now firmly pack planting mix around the roots and saturate it with the solution. For deeper plantings firm-in and saturate each layer of back-fill with more solution until you reach the soil surface. In brief, instead of using plain water when you plant, simply use the Root Rescue Transplanter solution. Once you've finished, rinse out the watering can with clean water. That’s it – you’re done.


Because Transplanter is mixed in water, it can also be applied after planting. Mix the solution and slowly soak it into the ground around the plant. Use the same technique that you would use if you wanted to deep water any plant in your landscape. The beneficial ingredients in the Transplanter solution will be carried with the water into the entire root zone of the plant where they can go to work immediately; simple and easy.


The beneficial soil fungi in Transplanter will go to work immediately - and as your new plant grows, the benefits will continue for the entire life of the plant. Root Rescue’s Transplanter contains millions of natural-sourced beneficial fungi called mycorrhizae. These amazing fungi will find extra water and nutrients in the soil that the roots alone cannot access, helping your new plant to adapt to your garden, keeping it stronger, healthier and more self-sufficient in the weeks and years ahead.


After planting day, use organic products to feed and care for your new plants:

  • Organic Fertilizers
  • Compost or Compost Tea
  • Natural Source Rock Mineral Supplements
  • Bone Meal is Not Recommended to be used with this product
  • Mulch to control weeds

Please speak with a nursery expert at your favorite garden centre for more advice about caring for your landscape plants without the use of synthetic fertilizers or chemicals. If you’d like to use a synthetic fertilizer, you can – but only use Slow Release formulations.


Thanks again for using Root Rescue's Transplanter.


Because Transplanter mixes easily in water you can also use a hose-end, dial type applicator to apply the solution. This is a very quick and efficient way to apply Transplanter.
