I have always believed my soil to be neutral so have always had my Rhodies, Pieris, camellia etc in pots. Out and about lately I've noticed that many of the gardens around here have said acid loving plants in the gardens & not in pots.
Last year my neighbour planted a beautiful pieris and he also has a lovely rhodie in his garden too both of which look pretty healthy to me.
I have just done another soil test using a new testing kit and yep it's showing I have neutral soil! I'd love to have my plants in the ground and out of their pot but I'm a bit reluctant to put them in to see how they do because I'd hate to loose them.
Am I missing something really obvious here?
