Deanna Caswell and Daisy Siskin of Little House in the Suburbs share how to adapt purchased compost to reflect the richness of homemade compost. When you buy compost, it’s typically harvested from a single source, which could be cows or chickens or mushrooms. This single source limits the amount of nutrients in the compost. Homemade compost comes from numerous sources—coffee grounds, yard waste, peels and ends from every vegetable you’ve eaten in the last year, chunks of plants you grew last year—so it will have a billion different nutrients.

However, one is limited to rooting only a few new plants at a time unless he/she has many hydrangeas. Changing the Color of Hydrangeas. To obtain a blue hydrangea, aluminum must be present in the soil. To ensure that aluminum is present, aluminum sulfate may be added to the soil around the hydrangeas. Authorities recommend that a solution of 1/2 oz (1 Tbsp) aluminum sulfate per gallon of water be applied to plants (which are at least 2-3 years old) throughout the growing season. Important: Water plants well in advance of application and put solution on cautiously, as too much can burn the roots.

To make the aluminum available to the plant, the pH of the soil should be low (5.2-5.5). Adding aluminum sulfate will tend to lower the pH of the soil. If the soil naturally contains aluminum and is acid (low pH) the color of the hydrangea will automatically tend toward shades of blue and/or purple. The choice of fertilzer will also affect the color change. Good Seed-Starting Instrucions.
