A gardeners greatest ally! Carbon Gold have developed a fresh approach to soil improvement. “GroChar” is a combination of purifying charcoal, growth stimulating seaweed, mycorrhizal fungi; for a turbo charged root system and worm casts; the cleanest and healthiest form of compost.

As gardeners we spend copious amounts of money on fertilizers. “But how much of it actually gets to the plants before it is washed away? If your soil can’t hold on to nutrients, then you might as well be pouring it down the drain. This is where “GroChar” comes in to effect. It simply makes life easier for plants. Like a sponge, it absorbs every mineral and nutrient they require, making it available to the plant when they need it.

“GroChar” has been successful in preventing or curing honey fungus, box blight, phytophthora and other fungal diseases. Recent findings have also shown that “GroChar” could help ash trees resist the chalara ‘dieback’ disease, according to research taken out by the woodland trust it increases the population of friendly defensive microorganisms in a plant’s root zone by up to 10 times, helping to defend against such nasties!

Reviewed 1st September 2014 by Rupert Taylor

If £20.00 seems a lot for a bucket of charcoal its not! Bio char is a remarkable product increasing cation exchange, water retention and efficiency of fertilizers within the soil. Applied at 250g per m2 it is a one off soil treatment reducing transplanting shock, increasing growth and improving plant health. Do not be tempted to grind up the barbeque charcoal as it is produced at a lower temperature and you are likely to poison your soil so make sure its genuine Bio char.
