    can you get Iron in granular form like fertlizer?Ihave used liquid,and did not like the results I got.I have used up to twice the recommended amout.Icould not tell that it did anything.My thinking that msybe granulated melted down might do a better if someone mskes it.

    Yes, it's avalable at any L&G store. Ironite's web site is: http://www.ironite.com. I would check your methods/rates to make sure you applied correctly, I get much better results with spraying v/s granular. I think I mix 2.5 gals Iron to 80 gallons water.

    Is it the iron in the fertilizer that leaves stains on concrete after a rain? (If your to lazy to blow it off).

    Yeah that's the stuff Bob :)

    BTW, Lesco used to have a granular product that was near 18% iron. We used it about 6 years ago with lackluster results.
     
  5. What do you expect to gain with the application of iron?
