Espoma Soil Acidifier for Hydrangeas and Blueberries will turn hydrangeas blue, lower the pH of soils for optimum growth of acid-loving plants, derived from Elemental Sulfur & Gypsum, great for blueberries, safer than Aluminum Sulfate. 

 

Usage Tips:

  • Apply in Spring and every 60 days until desired pH is achieved
  • Hydrangeas & Blueberries: Apply in the spring to lower soil pH.
    New Plantings: 1-1/4 cups per plant.
    Established Plants: 2-1/2 cups per plant
    Spread evenly around the plant out to the drip line and water well. Repeat in 60 day intervals until desired pH or bloom color is achieved.
  • Potted Plants: One tbsp. for each 4˝ of pot diameter.
  • Broadcast Rate:
    Apply 12 lbs. per 100 sq. ft. for each one point reduction in soil pH desired. For heavy clay soils increase rate to 15 lbs. Gradual reduction in soil pH is preferred as dramatic reduction can result in stress.
