Any gc will stock it rosemary.  Cheap.  Just go for most basic .  

it's always wise too check ph's possible your soil is basically acid but if mushroom compost, for example, has been used or if limed it will make it alkaline.

Iron in a form your plants can absorb Rosemary.  

I asked about the heathers because if they were summer flowering and healthy it would confirm acid soil.  When did you check your ph....soil acidity?  You are sure it is acid?

Far from a sob story it was a happy story.  

If I had the money I would love doing what AT does.  

Always bits that are just not practical ...rather like wrapping paper around the pressies.  It all adds to the impact

Of course, it is sentimental but I don't doubt the sincerity of AT or any of his team.  Simon Cowel parallel?  Come on

Rosemary, did you plant magnolia and camelia last year?  

both plants need a neutral to acid soil.  Alkaline soils arent great for them.  

A sequesterene spray will help.

Your heathers?  Are they summer or winter flowering?  

Or, is your soil dry?  You didnt say if you watered your plants
