Coast of Maine Planting Soil for Acid-Loving Plants
For Conditioning and Revitalizing Soil:
Natural & Organic Planting Soil for Tomatoes & Vegetables is the ideal soil conditioner to improve and revitalize the soil in and around your acid-loving plants.
For sandy, compacted or clay soil, work a 2 inch layer into the top 4 to 6 inches of soil before planting.
For New and Exisitng Garden Beds:
To maintain healthy soils, apply Acid-Loving Planting Soil every year around your plants.
This is best done either in the spring before new foliage emerges, or in the fall after the plants have gone dormant.
When planting acid-lovers such as rhododendrons, azaleas, ferns, hollies, hydrangeas, and blueberries - backfill the planting hole with a mix of equal parts of Acid-Loving Planting Soil and existing garden soil.
Do not pack the soil down around the plants, as this eliminates valuable airspace for the roots. Rather, water the plant in to settle the soil, adding more if needed.
Water thoroughly and regularly until the plant has established itself.
