Acid-loving plants like blueberries, potatoes, rhododendrons, and azaleas thrive in acidic soil. Acid-loving acidic fertilizers will feed these plants while helping maintain a lower soil pH. Some may think that adding coffee grounds to your soil will lower the pH but actually they do not, their pH is close to neutral. What about other organic materials such as pine needles to lower high pH soils? Pine needles do not actually lower the pH of the soil either, the best way to make acidic soil is to add elemental sulfur. Alkaline soils will “hold” onto iron and plants may show signs of iron deficiency. Iron is more available to the plant if the pH is lower than 6.5. So adding more iron will not fix the problem, you also need to measure the pH of your soil to make sure it is not too alkaline.
