Review of acid loving plant fertilizer

Bought several Oakleaf Hydrangeas and bought the acid loving plant starter soil to get them off to a good start. Glad I did, they have only been in the ground a month and the have tripled in size and starting to get blooms. I am in central Florida.

Amazing! First I ordered 1 tree Pinky winky hydrangea. After it arrived and I saw with my own eyes how great it arrived, I ordered 2 more. They are planted and look fabulous and only after 2 weeks are growing and filling out! Definitely ordering more! Thank you perfect plants!
