|You can amend the soil with peat moss or composted oak leaves prior to planting acid-loving plants, and feed with an acidified fertilizer such as Miracid. If you are keeping them in containers, choose a potting soil with peatmoss or mix some additional peat moss into the potting soil prior to using it. Hope this clarifies things for you.
