Re: gardenchat DIGEST V1 #207

No clue, haven't tested in years.  I just know that out here we are  more 
alkaline (naturally) than in Houston.  We are drier (according to  stats, average 
8 inches less rainfall a year than downtown Houston), and  can't grow 
azaleas, etc. like they do in East or downtown Houston.  I see  it too on the plants 
that are native...we tend to have more of the Central and  south Texas plants 
here, rather than East Texas.    I put down  coffee grounds and used Miracid 
constantly when I tried to grow Azaleas and  Hydrangeas....totally gave up, 
they never did well.  Can't grow most native  plants to East Texas either.   I 
have my Camelias in pots, and any  other acid loving plant.....only way I can 
grow them.   Not sure if  the Beautyberry needs acidic soil, just assumed that 
had to be it.   I  don't have any problems with any other plants that like 
neutral or alkaline  soil.
