A group of plants such as Azaleas, Camellias, Rhododendrons, Gardenias, Blue berries, Blue Hydrangeas etc. like slightly acidic pH (b/w 5.5 to 6.5) and grow very well in this pH range. They don’t like lime or alkaline soils. So strictly avoid applying lime to soils growing these plants.
It is important to test the pH of soils periodically (at least couple of times a year, once prior to spring and another prior to autumn) using Manutec Soil pH Test Kit and adjust pH as required to ensure correct pH and growing conditions.
In addition to using acidic soil conditioners such as sulphur to rectify pH from alkaline condition, use of specific acidifying fertilizers helps to maintain the acidic conditions required. Manutec Acidic Plat Food is a soluble fertiliser which is formulated using acidic materials and helps to maintain acidic conditions required for acid loving plants.
