Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest in trees. I would like to help you this evening.
Ferraplus is a patented high-iron supplement made for humans. It won't do trees any good. Plants can't absorb nutrients designed for oral consumption by humans.
If a tree actually has an iron deficiency, the best thing to do is provide it with a fertilizer made for trees that contains iron. A sign of iron deficiency is chlorosis. That means the leaves turn yellow in a certain pattern, often along the veins. If your trees have that, your local nursery or garden center can supply you with the fertilizer you need. If your trees are not suffering from a deficiency, iron won't do them any good at all.
If you have more questions, let me know in a REPLY. I hope this information will help.
