ng 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
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 and K is
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.
