It was diagnosed with Lacebug and I treated it with Bayer Tree and Shrub.
It was also recomended I use Iron Sulfate.
Is that the same as Hollytone?
I dont see anything in the ingredients listed as iron.Lots of potash and magnesium.

If it had iron sulfate in it, you would see it listed in the ingredients. Here's some iron sulfate--not sure if you can find this locally or if you'd have to order it online: http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&q=iron+sulfate+for+gardening&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&biw=1123&bih=684&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=13565179414018038299&sa=X&ei=xTHuTaiKOZH0swOcj5m6Aw&ved=0CFkQ8wIwBA#ps-sellers

I ended up with a liquid form that attaches to the hose. Of course I cant move the little wheel that turns the thing on and off. Dont the designers understand old geezer gardeners?
