Skimmia ‘Rubella’

Anonymous added on January 24, 2014 | Answered

The leave on my Skimmia 'Rubella' are turning yellow. I understand that the soil needs to be more acidic. I have purchased extract of seaweed with sequestered iron, but it says on the instruction to use during the growing season. 1. When is this? 2. Will the plant suffer if it is not treated?
