Our soil has the same Ph as a TOMATO! Can you imagine growing and thriving in that type of soil condition? Kudos to Newfoundland flora for just surviving! We fortunately can adjust our soil so more plants can flourish in your garden. You can add lime in the spring and fall. You can also choose plants that actually love acid soil:
saxifraga, primula, blueberries, raspberries, hydrangea, rhododendrhon, heather, holly, radish, potato, sweet potato and some trees like birch, spruce and fir.
