Westland Sulphate of Iron is ideal for Ericaceous and acid-loving plants, plus has immediately available Iron for best plant growth.

  • Ready to use granules
  • Strong root growth
  • Richer, green foliage
  • Acidifies the root zone
  • Prevents leaf yellowing
  • Contains iron

Why Use

Sulphate of iron makes soil more acidic, enabling special acid-loving plants to take up the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development.

For these special plants, if soils become too alkaline they suffer severe deficiencies when essential nutrients such as iron become unavailable. Sulphate of iron enriches and unlocks these nutrients from the soil. Works best for rhododendrons, camellias, azaleas and hydrangeas.

What to Expect

Sulphate of Iron will create the right conditions for healthy plant growth, keeping leaves green and healthy and preventing leaf yellowing.

For best results: When planting out your trees and shrubs use a dedicated compost to give your plants the very best start.

How To Use

When to Use

Sulphate of Iron can be applied every 4-6 weeks during the growing season from March to the end of August. Granules should be worked into the soil. During dry weather, water thoroughly before and after application.

How to Use

One handful of Sulphate of Iron is approximately 35g (1¼ oz).

You can apply Sulphate of Iron every 4-6 weeks to maintain the best soil pH for ericaceous plants.

Trees and shrubs

Apply 35g/sq. m (1¼ oz/sq. yd) around the base of established plants. Gently fork into the soil surface without disturbing the plant roots. Or alternatively, sprinkle the product over the soil surface, around the stem of the plant and water thoroughly. When planting out apply 35g/sq. m (1¼ oz/sq. yd) to the bottom of the planting hole and mix well with the soil or compost when refilling the hole.


Apply 35g/sq. m (1¼ oz/sq. yd) on the soil surface and fork in. Take care that the granules do not touch the plant leaves or
stems. Water in well after application.

                £9.99 Per Pot.

                Shipping will cost this amount per pot as we package each pot individually in most cases with excess packaging to ensure no damage comes to your fragile ceramic pot during transit. 

                If you are ordering for local delivery then delivery will be based on local delivery price.


                Fragile Shipping Explained Further:

                We package our ceramic pots & glass with as much packaging as we can in order to avoid damage in transit. Due to the weight of most pots & packaging, we must charge an appropriate amount to cover the cost of organising a 'fragile' delivery. Most courier services offer shipping based on weight which is exactly how we frame our delivery costs.

                Costs involved when shipping a fragile item (Ceramic pots):

                Shipping box, tape, excess bubble wrap + buffer packaging for extra protection, Shopify payment percentage charge (2%+25p!), time taken to wrap, pack & arrange a courier collection as well as cost of courier collection. 

                We aim to offer this service as competitively as possible but we would just like to make you aware of the costs involved when it comes to packaging a fragile item. Thank you for understanding.

                  Small but packed with a beautiful assortment of plants and shrubs. I try to buy all my plants at Mossy's as they are extremely good value for money. Very helpful and friendly staff.
