I have some large trachycarpus fortunei and wangerianus which are yellowing to a degree.

I have heard that using a good quality slow-release fertilizer as well as run-of-the-mill Epsom salts a few times a year is a good strategy to reduce the yellowing.

And so....two questions:

1 - Most important question: Is it true that using slow-release fertilizer and Epsom salts will reduce yellowing?
2 - which months of the year should I apply them. I was thinking early April, July, and again in October.
