When To Use:

How Much To Use:

We recommend wearing gardening gloves when feeding your plants

  • 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 the 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. A gradual reduction in soil pH is preferred as dramatic reduction can result in stress.
  • As a Fertilizer: Apply 1/2 cup per 100 square feet (1 tablespoon per plant) around the root zone

*Safer than Aluminum Sulfate due to potentially toxic levels of Aluminum with continued use of Aluminum Sulfate.

How To Apply:
Spread evenly around the plant out to the drip line and water well. Repeat in 60-day intervals until the desired pH or bloom color is achieved.
