Help! I have clearly put. Too concentrated solution of miracle gro acid azalea feed on my rhododendrons and azaleas. The flowers are all Burnt and wilted looking in 2 days. More worryingly, any surrounding plants have now got burnt Looking leaves. Eg my lovely acre tree. My Pieris is the same- all scorched looking. I followed the instructions but I must have ended up making the solution too concentrated. I am trying to flood the soil with the sprinkler to dilute it. What else can I do? .

I think you're doing what can be done to fix this. Don't drown your plants, but keep flushing the soil.
