How do I apply sulphate of iron in solid form? I tried today in my speader but it wouldn’t go through it. I think it was too damp. It just stuck to the bottom. I had to continuously bounce spreader to release it. I fear it wasn’t spread very evenly. Also how long do I have to wait before applying fertiliser?

Sulphate of iron must be applied dry or it wil cake in the spreader as it is a salt and absorbs moisture readily. It can be mixed with dry sand to help to spread it and it can be applied, dissolved in a suitable quantity of water, with a sprayer or watering can.

Fertiliser can be applied at any time, ideally when rain is expected.
