Our acidic potting soil is great for all your acid loving plants such as azaleas, Japanese flowering magnolias, camellias, gardenias and loropetalum that like their soil pH a bit lower. This acidic soil mix has a pH level lower than 7.0 on the pH scale. We perform a soil test on every batch of soil that we hand-make here at the nursery.
This blend of potting mix includes organic matter such as Canadian peat moss, aged pine bark, controlled release 360 day fertilizer, granite sand and other minor elements to provide you with the best start to amending your garden soil.
If you want even more acidic soil after you have used a testing kit to test the soil pH at home, you can use coffee grounds, calcium carbonate, or wood ash to lower pH. These soil amendments will help with alkaline soil that needs to be slightly acidic.
Dig a planting hole the depth of your plant and twice as wide as your plant. Mix your dug up soil with the amended Acidic Potting Soil and use this mixture to fill back in around the root ball of your plant. Pack the potting soil in firmly ensuring no air holes remain and water thoroughly.
Apply directly at the plant roots.
