I have got to say out of all the ferts. I have, this has got to be the one I couldn't do without. If you have any evergreens (In my case, magnolias and gardenias) you will need this! The leaves on my gardenia were yellow all over and falling off. I drenched the soil as well as foliage fed this on my gardenia and within a week the leaves were turning a lustrous, deep dark green. I use this on everything. I will warn you, DO NOT AND I REPEAT, DO NOT LET THE WATER MIXED WITH THIS PRODUCT GET ON YOU CONCRETE! IT WILL STAIN.. If watering in a pot, move to the grass or dirt before doing this. Other than that, buy it!
I had been using powdered sulfur and liquid iron supplements to control soil pH in blueberry patch with very mixed results. I decided to try this liquid acidifier with iron. One step definitely better than before. First application cleared my chlorosis and with second pH has fallen to desired level. At this point it's the best I've found. No fuss and effective.
I give my 20 Blueberry plants three treatments per season. They are growing well now. (Had poor acidity previously and lost almost half of them.) This plus pine bark mulch have us moving ahead. Would recommend to a friend.
I use Fertilome Soil Acidifier Plus Iron as part of an overall lawn maintenance program. The soil acidifier is essential in the alkaline soils of the Texas Hill Country. The iron is especially helpful during our frequent droughts when the only water on the lawn is from irrigation. My order arrived with only 9 of the bottles in the carton (damaged/repacked by the carrier?). This was the first time I've had a problem with an order and when I called customer service they were great about correcting the issue promptly. I get most all my lawn products and all my pest control supplies from DoMyOwn as they consistently have the best prices and selection
