Ericaceous Plant Feeding.

I use mostly a tomato feed or a seaweed based tomato feed across most of my garden, depends what comes to hand. Really. 

For one or two Ericaceous plants that I have in pots- a Camelia, and as of this year a “Girl” Magnolia Susan in a huge container I have used sulphate of Iron soluble feed.

however is using that alone enough or should I use the sulphate of Iron alongside the normal tomato feed for the Ericaceous plants?

If I use that alone are the plants not going to miss some nutrients?

    Yes, use the Iron Sulphate alongside the usual fertilizers, but wait 4-5 days after using the Iron before you use fertilizer.
    Using rain water is excellent for ericaceous plants - if you have a supply

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • Great, thanks @Pete.8
