Questions & Answers

How many "cups" of product are in the package?

In the instructions for using the product, it says to add 1-1/4 to 2-1/2 cups per blueberry plant. How many cups are in the 6 pound bag?
Asked by: glentall
The product website actually says 1lb = 2 cups.

Can this be applied with fertilizer?

Soil test came back as 7.5% ph or higher. St Augustine is not growing well and not green whatsoever. Can this be applied after a 15-5-10 application (at same time)?
Asked by: SGL1
Very likely your 15-5-10 product has some sulfur in it. You can double check it by looking on the back label where it would probably be listed as SO4 in the ingredients listing. It is frequently between 2% and 4%. If you find that to be the case, I would suggest you wait about 4 weeks after the fertilizer. You would not want to apply too much at one time because that could lower the ph too much. Most grasses want between 6.5 and 7.0 ph.

How and when to use it?

I was told to be careful with fertilizing plants for the first year they are planted but this product did not seem to be fertilizer, can I use it to amend the soil when I plant the shrub or I should wait and mix this in a soil later on, I intend to use it planting Hibiscus this coming spring and also possibly mix it in a soil where I planted Rhododendron. Our soil is a clay but I already amended it with garden and top soil, compost and leaves and sand.
Asked by: Lara
Have you tested the ph of the soil? Your hibiscus prefers a ph fairly close to neutral or slightly acidic, meaning a ph of between 6.5 and 7.0. If you do not have very alkaline soil, say 8.0-9.0, it would be a good idea to test before using the sulphur on it. For the best health of the hibiscus, make sure the soil is well drained (you mentioned the soil was clay). Hibiscus like to be well drained. However, your friend the Rhododendron loves acid soil and by that I mean 4.5 ph. He will be very happy to have sulphur to amend his living conditions if he is not living in a pine forest. The lower the ph, the easier it is for him to get the nutrients he needs from the soil. When using sulphur, it is almost always best to test the soil first. You can really hurt your friends in the garden if you overuse it. Also, if you want to use it at planting, follow the package directions for doing so.

I have used it before, it takes several months to change the PH to acid, so you need patience, but it does work.
