Carol, I was planning a trip to the GC tomorrow. This sounds like something I could really use. Thank you. They don't usually suffer this much damage. Did you see the ice pictures? It was thick and often. No wonder they're beat up. I'll update. @carolgs
Hi Michelle. I'm going to give epsom salts a try all around the garden. But I haven't started yet. You're right, it may help rhodies out of their misery. @purplebird I am going to hit the new witch hazel, who had a rather rough planting. All the soil fell away from the roots, so I'm a little concerned.
I dug out my Epson salts mixtures receipies to be sure I remembered right. And that is the liquid drenching mixture to use through out season as needed. Also presoak transplants in 1/2 cup ES in gallon water. Soak root ball piror to planting. Can spray leaves with 1Tbsp ES/ gal water. And drenching solution helps leaf curling due to lack of Mg. Yellow leaves add to fertilizer once a month or spray leaves. Roses can use presoak, and add 1Tbsp to bottom of planting hole, cover with thin cont.
Cont.layer of dirt then put in.plant. Also drench roses once a month. Or top dressing, sprinkle 1 Tbsp ES / foot of height around base of plant and water in. Once a month for top dressing instead of drenching. That's what I have. Good luck 🤗
You are most welcome. But no trouble. My garden folder is on the headboard of my bed. So usually right in reach. Just had to think about looking it up instead of just remembering. Wouldn't want to give you the wrong strength.🤗
