All calcifuge (lime hating plants) such as azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolias, conifers, as well as many ericas and alpines can benefit from regular top dressing with Elixir® Bumper Crop Sulphate Of Iron.
PREVENT CLUMPING –
Most people have issues with other brands of Iron Sulphate, clumping during winter months. This will lead to a product that is not as effective when using a spreader. Our product is packed inside re-sealable pouches or in a tightly sealed tub, to help prevent clumping as much as possible.
KILLS MOSS –
Even after as little as one hour, moss will start blacken; after two days, the moss should have reduced and turned dark brown whilst the grass will be very green. Once the moss has died back, you can scarify out the debris – ideally 5-14 days after application.
KEY BENEFITS –
- The sulphate acidifies the soil and promotes fine leaved grass growth. High alkaline soil hurts grass growth.
- Controls unwanted moss that ruin the appearance of your lawn
- Reduces that chance of turf disease
- Fertilises the soil

30g dissolved per litre of water applied by either sprayer or watering can per 2 square metres.

Sprayer – If you intend to use sulphate of iron on its own then spraying is the best and easiest option. The product is mixed in water (it mixes better in warm water but is not essential) and then simply sprayed on to the lawn. It needs to be mixed well to prevent spray filters and nozzles clogging, warm water helps the iron dissolve quickly. Do not spray if rain is imminent, as it needs to dry on the moss for the most effective results. Once applied, no watering in is required with this method of application.
CAUTION – Care is needed around hard surfaces and to protect yourself. This product can burn and stain paths, concrete, tarmac and paving if a heavy dose spills on it. Care should also be taken when treating the edge of your lawn. However, if a small amount of the product blows onto paving then a quick sweep will prevent any lasting damage
