Soluble Iron Sulphate 20%Fe Lawn Tonic
GREEN-UP YOUR LAWN
Our Soluble Iron Sulphate Lawn Tonic will have an amazing effect on your lawn, leaving it a beautiful rich, green colour. It improves soil conditions for acid loving plants and reduces the alkalinity of soils. This helps make available the natural elements and nutrients essential to the healthy cultivation of plants which thrive in acid conditions. All calcifuge (lime hating plants) such as azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolias, conifers, as well as many ericas and alpines can benefit from a regular top dressing of Elixir Gardens Sulphate Of Iron.
A lot of people have issues with other brands of Iron Sulphate with it clumping during winter months. This will lead to a product that is not as effective when using a spreader. Our product can be purchased in a re-sealable tub to help prevent clumping as much as possible.
The sulphate acidifies the soil and promotes fine leaved grass growth. High alkaline soil hurts grass growth.
Fertilises the soil.

Sprayer – If you intend to use sulphate of iron on its own then spraying is the best and easiest option. The product can be mixed with water (mixes better in warm water but 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 for the most effective results. No watering is required with this method of application.
For best results, we recommend you scarify and aerate your lawn before applying our product.
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
