I have a ph meter, and my soil reading is just to the left of neutral, that is slightly acidic - probably around 6. I want to try planting flowers that like acidic soil. Would they grow ok as it is, or should I mix in some ericaceous soil?



It should be ok I think

We're more or less neutral, leaning towards acidic, in my part of London and acid loving plants grow perfectly well here, so it'll be fine.

Thanks for your answers - I will go ahead. There seems to be so many more nicer blooms with acid loving flowers, fingers crossed
