Murphy's Sequestrene

From time to time my dear old mum used to slip me a couple of sachets of Murphy's Sequestrene to cheer up my ailing rhododendrons and azaleas.

Looking recently on Amazon I noticed that it appears to be permanently out of stock. Is this product still available? If not, what is the best alternative? Just as a final question, I have often thought about using it on my hydrangeas, but was never sure if this was the right thing to do. Would it be a good tonic for hydrangeas as well?

Many thanks.

    You can use Vitax Seaweed plus Sequestered Iron or Chempack Sequestered Iron and you can use this on your Hydrangeas too. Murphy's sequestrene is another EU withdrawal.

  • That particular brand seems no longer available (this same topic came up a year or two ago.)

    Search for "sequestered iron feed" which is what this stuff is.
