Tuesday tips

  • Use leftover tea and coffee grounds to acidify the soil of acid-loving plants such as azaleas, rhododendrons, camellias, gardenias and even blueberries. A light sprinkling of about one-quarter of an inch applied once a month will keep the pH of the soil on the acidic side.
  • After you boil or steam vegetables, use it to water your plants, and you’ll be amazed at how the plants respond to the “vegetable soup.”

  • You can change your hydrangea’s color by altering the pH level of the soil.
    A more alkaline soil will result in pinker blooms, while more acidity will produce blue blooms. To coax your plant to the blue side, add more organic matter to your soil, like egg shells and coffee grounds. The change won’t be immediate but it will be a beautiful process.
