Ericaceous Compost
« on: April 22, 2011, 18:46 »
I have quite a bit of this left after using it to plant my blueberry bushes.  What other fruit & veg is this stuff useful for growing?  Does anyone have any ideas?

Is your soil already a bit too acidic?

If not, it would make a good mulch for raspberries, in general I don't think it would make much difference to the soil pH if used as a mulch for any fruit or veg or just dug in as a soil improver; most prefer a pH on the acid side of neutral anyway.
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!
