5-1-1 acid/alkaline question
I am mixing up a load of 5-1-1 for my containers. I am putting a Japanese Maple in one (still very insecure about using gritty mix, had another failure and needed to get the JM out of the slop she was in before budding) and she needs an acid soil. I read somewhere on the forum that the 5-1-1 had a PH of 5.0 without the lime. Would you all advise that I add something to make the mix more acid for my JM and the flowers? Am I correct that I need to add lime to my veggie containers? I will be using FP fertilizer for all my containers. The frogs are starting to croak here!!!! It's one of my favorite things about Spring.
Thanks in advance for your help.
