IRON YOUR TREES!

ironplus-1As part of soil preparation in the Fall, Payne’s recommends using iron sulfate this time of year. Sprinkle it on now so that it can slowly acidify the soil and therefore release nutrients that are locked up and unavailable to your plants. It is very beneficial for trees, flower beds, gardens and grass.

Contains a pelletized material that will turn Yellow plants and grasses Green fast. Will not burn when used as directed.

Application Rates: 

  • Water thoroughly after application.
  • Shrubs: 4 tablespoons per average shrub in top 2-4 inches of soil.
  • Trees: 12 tablespoons for trees up to 3 inches in trunk diameter. 16 tablespoons for trees with 4 inches or more in trunk diameter…equally applied in holes 10 to 12 inches deep around the drip line of tree.
  • Caution: Will stain concrete and pavement!

The above application rates are for Hi-Yield Iron Plus Soil Acidifier.On ALL products ALWAYS read and follow label directions!

BRING THE OUTDOORS IN!

As our temperatures begin to drop, many of our customers start asking what blooming plants can be brought indoors for the winter.  The standard answer is almost always Geraniums.  But, there are others that do well, such as Impatiens, Coleus and Begonias.

You can bring in an existing pot or dig the plant out of the garden. Make sure that the pot is large enough to accommodate an ever growing plant. Place your plants in a bright location away from drafts.  In the case of the geranium, it can get direct sunlight. I suggest fertilizing the plant once a month with a half strength fertilizer.  Be careful not to over water as the plant will not be taking up moisture as quickly as it did in the garden.  Do not let the pot sit in water either.  Seeing a touch of color through the Winter creates a different atmosphere in the home bringing in warmth and beauty for all to enjoy.

HAPPY GARDENING!
