bracts) by changing the pH of the soil. For blue flowers, you'll want to achieve a pH of 4.5 to 5.5. For pink flowers, you want a pH of 7.0 to 7.5. Use an inexpensive soil pH test kit from the nursery or hardware store to test the pH of the soil around the plant's roots. Lower the soil pH by adding sulphur
sulphur or aluminum sulfate (making the soil more acid). Raise the soil pH by adding ground agricultural limestone (making the soil more alkaline). Follow label directions for application rate and frequency.

understanding of pH, it refers to the acidity of the soil and is measured by the number of hydrogen ions present in the soil. It's a logarithmic scale based on the power of 10. As such, a pH of 6 is 10 times more acidic than pH of 7. Thus, even a little change in pH can make a big difference. A pH of 7 is neutral
equal proportion N, P and K. Hydrangeas like a low N and a high P; thus a combination of 10-40-10 would be ideal. My general rule of thumb to remember what the numbers mean is to start with the first number and apply from the top of the plant to the bottom. As such, N is for the green, P is for the bloom
neutral. A pH lower than than 7 is acidic. A ph higher than 7 is alkaline. Most plants like a pH between 6.5 and 7. Hydrangeas like it more acidic than most plants.

soil test.) In addition to soil texture, your soil has a pH. Your soil pH is important because it tells you, on a scale from zero to 14, if you have acidic or basic soil. Acidic soils have a pH below 6, and alkaline, or basic, soils have a pH above 7. Most garden soils are in the neutral range, between
in your landscape that have a higher or lower pH. Mediterranean Landscape by Bear Creek Landscape Bear Creek Landscape SaveEmail Why does pH matter? Soil pH affects how plants take up nutrients. Most plants can survive just fine in soils with different pH numbers, but there are some plants that actually
that contribute to an already acidic soil on your property. If that’s the case, ericaceous plants will thrive there. To find out, pick up an easy soil pH test at your local hardware store. Then match ericaceous plants with areas on your property that have acidic soil.
