Root Refresher’s FAQ

What are Root Refreshers?

Root Refreshers by Europlanters are a new product designed to keep plants and trees continually hydrated at a constant rate between maintenance periods. They are made from the highest quality capillary matting specifically chosen for its ability to absorb water along with a unique water retaining polymer with aerating properties, together they optimise the refreshment of a plant’s roots when needed. Root Refreshers are perfect for plants confined to planters where growing media often dries out quickly, as the soil dries out the plants can draw from the water reservoir. Root Refreshers come in a wide range of recommended shapes and sizes and we also offer a bespoke service to cater for every need. Each Root Refresher contains the exact amount of polymer, so there is no time wasted measuring out quantities.

When should I use Root Refreshers?

Root Refreshers can be used for any plant interior or exterior as the water is only released when the plants roots need it. They are especially useful in areas where there is poor access or an automatic watering system cannot be installed. Root Refreshers can be used in conjunction with an automated system, just turn the watering times down and save water!

Will Root Refreshers keep plants hydrated and healthy during

a drought?

Yes! During drought conditions your plants will stay healthy by drawing on the stored life-giving reservoir of water in the Root Refresher. It’s important to note that Root Refreshers will remain moist for some weeks even in the driest of conditions giving up their stored water by an on-going process of diffusion triggered by the low relative humidity in the surrounding compost and roots.

Are Root Refreshers filled with a swelling gel?

In short, No. Root Refreshers contain a material called HappiRoot a neutral product based on polyoxyethylene which is patented by Smart Tech Ltd. When swollen with water HappiRoot has a porous structure where channels allow free water to be stored and air to circulate. HappiRoot does not and is not intended to replicate the behaviour of other water swelling materials.

What is the main difference between HappiRoot* and swelling


HappiRoot expands approximately ten times, whilst swell gels expand hundreds of times. HappiRoot retains its structure allowing the free fl ow of water and air, and at the same time provides a honeycomb structure to support and encourage root growth, whereas swelling gels become a sticky mass (like mud or clay) which does not allow for the free fl ow of air and water, the HappiRoot in Root Refreshers by Europlanters retains its structure with internal pores and spaces for free water and air.

Have they been tested?

Each product that makes up Root Refreshers by Europlanters has been extensively tested by the inventors to ensure optimum results, along with our own experiments – See Root Refreshers in action by Europlanters. We will continue to use our Root Refreshers in house and push them to extremes!

Can Root Refreshers save costs?

Yes, when using a liquid fertilizer the polymer will also lock in the nutrients of the feed and release it when the plant takes water, reducing the amount of fertilizer washed away when watering, saving money. The materials used for Root Refreshers have also been carefully selected to ensure optimum results and the cost of each Root Refresher is far less expensive than most other irrigation systems.

Are Root refreshers easy to store?

Yes, Root Refreshers are easy to store as a little goes a long way! Transporting is easy too as Root Refreshers are lightweight and compact.

Are Root Refreshers environmentally friendly?

The HappiRoot Polymer inside Root Refreshers is biodegradable over time in direct sunlight and it’s a non-toxic product.

Are Root Refreshers British Made?

Root Refreshers are manufactured in Britain using the highest quality and patented materials.
