One more question following my first question about tomatoes. I have three blueberry plants which also seem to be struggling. They were planted in 2010. They have produced a few berries which are quite good, but I feel the plants are way too small. I took some soil and had it tested and find the ph is 6.6. I looked on your website and it says ideal ph for blueberries is 4.5 - 5.5. However it indicates the soil should be amended before the plants are put in. My question, is there anything I can do now to save these plants? I understood from the website that it takes a good six months for the finely ground elemental sulfer to work into the ideal soil for these berries. Also, when the instructions say 3.5 - 4.5 lbs S/100 sq. ft. I'm not sure what that means. How much would that be per plant? Thank you so much for taking my questions. Phyllis
