Product information "Fruitful Soil No. 3 | Soil for Bog Beds"

Acidic plants such as blueberries, cranberries, rhododendrons, blue hydrangeas and Japanese maple need a low pH around 4.5. Because this is not the case in most natural garden soils, a bog bed must have acidic soil, if possible without the inflow of calcareous water. And, of course, growing plants in pots or containers is also possible. For both uses the Fruitful Soil No. 3 can be used in pure form, not mixed. It not only allows the start, but also the long-term cultivation of bog beds.
• with a low pH value (pH 4.5)
• expanded clay and slow release fertiliser
• stable structure (30% wood fibres)
What should be observed when planting bog beds?
Bog beds should be sectioned off with plastic since otherwise water and lime will penetrate from the outside into the acidic milieu of the bog bed. Then the pH increases, then the bog bed plants will die. Even if the name bog bed suggests that it is a type of wet planting, this impression is deceiving. Most plants cultivated in bog beds, such as blueberries, rhododendrons, hydrangeas or cranberries, do not tolerate permanently wet conditions. The plastic must therefore have drainage holes. Of course one can also use the Fertile Soil No. 3 in containers and pots. Particularly in containers (but also in large bog beds) one should not forget to fertilise with acidic fertiliser.
Which plants need a bog bed?
All plants that prefer a low pH in the soil should be planted in bog beds. This applies in particular to the following:

• Blueberries
• Cranberries
• Rhododendrons
• Azaleas
• Blue hydrangeas
• Japanese maple

Carnivorous plants and other bog bed plants, which depend on a nutrient-poor, lime-free soil, should be planted in a special substrate.
