Re: bermudagrass wars

Soil here runs neutral to slightly sweet. Mine was about 6.5 last time I
had it tested maybe 3 years ago. I've got a test bag here for Texas A &
M so will do another sample while I have all these beds dug up. The
camellia gets acid plant fertilizer 4 X a year and mulched w/ coffee
grounds about once a month and it does ok. I'm pleased because it
provides much needed color in the winter!! It also has the dubious
distinctintion of being the most expensive plant in the garden!! LOL Its
leaves got a bit singed during those couple of 109-107 degree days (w/o
humidity) but the buds are intact.

I was relieved!
