I think our trees need some iron, but how do we know how much to use? Our soil is VERY clay and sticky. We tilled in a lot of nutrimulch before we planted anything, but it still dries as hard as a rock (literally) and is very sticky when wet. I don't understand about acidic soil vs. alkaline, or which one is clay. Also, the iron that we have said that it is a soil acidifier. Will that work for the trees and my blue hydrangea bush (to be sure to get blue blooms)? It is from Cook's: Hi-Yield Iron Plus

What is the amount of water needed for anthony waterer and bridal wreath spireas. My plants do not look very good. The leaves are yellow, and the bridal wreaths do not have very many leaves. Is this iron chlorosis, and if so what should I do to fix it?

I have a Satomi Kousa dogwood that has started to drop its leaves. It has been in the ground for 2+ years now. It has done very well until the last month. The leaves look green and the twigs are also green when scratched. There doesn't seem to be a problem with insects or a herbicide around the tree. It has started growing new leaves again. Any reasons why this could happen? I'm guessing it's the heat.
