|I JUST PURCHASED A SAMSON BLUEBERRY TREEE,I KNOW I NEED TO ACIDIC GROUND FOR THIS . HOW DO I MAKE MY PLANTING AREA ACIDIC,MAINTAIN AN ACIDIC AREA FOR THIS TREE.
I NEED YOUR HELP.
If your soil is a heavy black clay it is difficult to get the pH to move down. In such a case your best bet is to add sulfur and rototill it into a large area. The add peat moss over a large area also and rototill it in as deeply as you can. Your County Extension Office can assist you with having your soil tested and interpreting the results. Without a soil test it is impossible to know whether the pH can be practically moved down or not and if so how much sulfur is needed.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
