What is the ideal PH for the seedling? I received a perfect tree and would like to keep it that w...

Asked by LasVegasLife April 13, 2021

Answer

Thank you for your comments. Like most evergreens, Douglasfir does prefer a slightly acidic soil. We start with a lower pH and during production it does creep up. If you are potting into a larger container I would suggest a good quality potting mix. Most mixes will be neutral to slightly acidic. If the pH is too high, it can be lowered by adding sulfur to the soil. Add a very small amount. The sulfur should have some guidelines on how much to add by soil volume. Just as important as soil pH is soil moisture. Most evergreens prefer moist but not wet soils. Constantly wet soil will cause root rot problems. Let the soil become dry and then water thoroughly. Finally, Douglasfir is a fast growing species. Adding a slow release fertilizer will maintain fertility levels necessary for good growth. Thank you again and I hope you enjoy your Douglasfir.

Trees were shipped and arrived as projected. I ordered 5, but really only needed 4. It's a good thing though, because 1 looks like it will not make it. The other 4 are doing great. Order a couple more than you think you'll need (they are mail order trees, after all). They're worth the price.
