neutral soil, am I screwed?
Due to my husbands job transfer, we just moved from the Pittsburgh, PA area to Columbus, OH.
I just got the results back from my soil test and was shocked and concerned. I assumed that, due to a similar climate, my soil here in Central Ohio would have a similar acidity to our old house in PA.
I WAS WRONG!! Despite the bad rap, I loved my acid soil in PA, pH 5.0, hat grew everything I liked from Azaleas to Maples and Conifers.
What can I grow in this neutral clay, pH 7.0? It seems like all my favorites are out that like acid soil -- maples, most oaks, azaleas, most conifers...what do you grow in a soil and climate like mine?
Since this is the Maple board, specifically which maples are good for a heavy, but still reasonably well drained and fertile, neutral soil in zone 5b?
