Re: Rhododendrons and Hostas as Companions

Again the really important thread with this soil question is decomposing organic matter and less with the exact ph.

If some problem appears it could be from a build up of some particular mineral to a toxic level or the lack of something specific which can only be determined by a soil test.

The important area for Jack to test is 6" build up area.

The native soil at the nursery is a sandy type loam with a layer of decomposed fir, hemlock, cedar and Oregon Big Leaf Maple leaves, about 6" deep. If rototilled in together makes a great planting mix. We really have not checked for PH, but the hostas seem happy in it.
