Liquinox Iron & Zinc, 1 gal.

Liquinox Iron & Zinc Fertilizer Supplement, 1 gal. Used to correct chlorosis (yellowing), iron and micronutrient deficiency in trees, shrubs and lawns.
Product Description
Liquinox Iron & Zinc is an excellent liquid formula for correcting chlorosis (yellowing) and iron deficiency in trees, shrubs and lawns. It also contains essential micro nutrients such as manganese, copper and zinc needed for vigorous, healthy plant growth. Iron Plus is especially beneficial to azaleas, camellias, citrus, gardenias, holly and roses, as well as all kinds of lawns. It can be effectively applied as a soil drench or foliar spray. Mix 1 to 4 tablespoons per gallon or water depending on plant size. Complete instructions are on every label. Keep off concrete to prevent staining from iron oxidation.

How To Use Tips
Iron chlorosis is frequently caused by over watering. If the soil is too wet, your plants can't use the iron you give them. Reduce frequency of watering, add organic mulch to heavy soils to improve drainage, or use a soil aerator to punch a series of small holes in the soil to bleed off excess water. When the moisture problem has been corrected, the supplemental iron you apply will work quickly and effectively. If you're still having trouble, check the soil pH. Use a test kit or pH Meter. Alkaline soils will "lock up" iron and other micronutrients, making them unavailable to your plants. If the soil tests out as too alkaline (usually over 7.5), add soil sulfur and organic mulch to correct the problem. If you're looking for a product that needs no mixing, try a granular iron product. For easy application on lawns or for foliar spray on large areas, use a hose end sprayer.
