Ideal pH Levels for Fruit Bushes, Trees, and Plants

Every plant on earth has a specific, ideal  pH level that will optimize health and growth. When a plant is in soil that is not optimized for it's growth needs, essential minerals and nutrients become locked up in the soil, unavailable to the plant.

Give all your plants the correct pH balance. If your fruit plant, bush, or tree is not as healthy as it should be, or if it doesn't provide ample amounts of fruit, you should conduct a soil test to see if the soil pH level needs adjusting. More on soil PH an dhow to adjust pH levels.
