Yes very good to know! I heard they were good for plants and told dh. So he has been dumping them here and there near my plants. I just told him that from now on he should put them in a pile so I can use them accordingly. Now perhaps I can use them in my beds that I will be planting sweet soil loving plants. My yard is naturally acidic so they will need some helpto be happy here. : ) Loved the whole article too. : )
We have alkaline soil here so I don't use lime or wood ashes, and I am trying to grow blueberries! I have killed azaleas and other things. Our water has a lot of lime in it, we have to soak our shower head in vinegar about 3 times every year, and clean the coffee pot with vinegar about that often. I would save rainwater for the blueberries but we hardly ever have enough to collect, being in an area that gets less than 10 inches of precipitation annually. It is not the part of Oregon you hear about on the weather station.
