Turning Colors

Don't wait to late....It's the perfect time of year to change the PH of your soil so you can influence the color of their flowers.  The old fashion Mop Tops, for the most part, can be influenced to be blue or pink depending on your soil PH.  If want to get that rich blue too purple hue then you want acidic soil.  Some of you may already have acidic soil,  a soil test will show you that, but if you don't just apply Ironite or Sulfate.  It will take several applications to get that deep rich color.  If you want pink then you want alkaline soil.   All you have to do is apply Lime.  This is the time to apply either product.   Then you will want to continue with several more applications through out the year.  Make sure you read the instructions.
