We planted several Nandina last year, but they are scraggly, browned- leaf, and look eaten. Plants do not appear to have grown. Soil content is acidic with PH 4.9 and low in calcium. We live on wooded area with lots of deer. How best to amend soil and provide healthy environment?

Thank you for your question. Since Extension staff in your state will be more familiar with soil (and other possible issues) than those of us in Oregon, I suggest you contact them directly: Good luck!
