Apply to hydrangeas to change flowers to pink colour. Also deepens existing pink colouring and raises soil pH. Supplies calcium carbonate, which is needed to assist changing blue and purple flowers to pink and to maintain vibrant pink colouring.
An easy to use liquid formulation, Yates Hydrangea Pinking Liquid Lime Dolomite is easy to dilute and apply. It also contains magnesium for healthy green foliage. No handling of dusty powders.
Soil pH affects the colour of hydrangea flowers:
Application: Soil drench, applying to moist soil around plant
Rate: Mix 25ml to 5L water and apply with watering can
Frequency: Every 3-4 weeks
Timing: Apply any time of the year or after winter pruning to adjust and maintain flower colour
For best results, check the soil pH before and during treatment (at least every 3 months). The optimum soil pH to ensure pink flowers is 7.5-8.5. Do not raise soil pH above this range as it could lead to plant damage. It is best to apply many smaller treatments rather than a single large treatment. To raise the pH of highly acidic soil will require a large number of repeat applications.
