BrazelBerry® blueberries prefer a permeable, acidic soil. The ideal pH value (degree of acidity) is between 4.5 and 5.5. Baby Cakes® blackberries prefer a pH value of between 6.5 and 7.5. This ensures optimal uptake of nutrients. BrazelBerry® plants thrive in beds as well as pots.
The quick and easy way to find out the acidity of your soil is to use a pH soil test. That shows you the pH value of the soil within minutes. Test sets are available from any garden centre.
If the pH value is too high, mix in soil for moorland plants.
