Does anyone know the formula of Vinegar and water to replace the acid in the Azalea etc?

I used it last year and forgot what the mix was.
Tablespoon vinegar to a gallon of water or somethng?

Cheaper than the other stuff..

Geesh, Barb, I didn't know you could do that either. Duh I just use coffee grounds and tea leaves on my acid loving plants and that always seems to work fine for me. wink

I reckon that would be just about right Dodge.
The needles of pines are also acidifying, just a little more slow release than using vinegar.
