Re: new plants


I tried them in pots of shredded pine bark. Didn't work. Replaced them with miracle fruit, which have to be the world's fussiest plants, which thrived. So I think my problem was not soil so much as climate.

Here in Colrado our soils are 8-9 pH. But there is a guy in Arvada that
swears by blueberries planted in a bag of sphagnum peat moss will do the

Lime?  I though blueberries were acidic.

On the way back from our trip to Florida and GA, we ran across a nursery that was selling blueberry plants. I bought a vaccinium ashei "blue gem" and "woodard". I've planted them in the sun but am not sure of the ph of the soil. I wanted to get them in the ground before the cold hits later
this week. Maybe, if I lime the area, it will work.
