Blueberry advice please!
Hello there everyone.
I bought two blueberry plants a few weeks ago and planted them here in my alkaline california soil. I mixed large parts peat moss with the native soil and sprinkled in soil acidifier (looks kind of like little lentils) to make them happy. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping this works, because the pH tester I bought reads between 7 and 8 no matter where I stick it, so I guess I'm on my own (no instructions, I think it's broken already).
Anyway, long story short, how can I tell if the soil is too acidic or too alkaline for the berries? The new shoots look okay, but a lot of the old leaves are kind of curling in on themselves and wrinkling. I don't know if this is because of some sort of transplanting stress or maybe the way they were grown in the nursery.
Any help is much appreciated, thanks!
