For optimum results apply as part of a soil treatment program with Yates Soil Acidifier.  This will help with reducing soil pH, while also supplying the aluminium necessary for blue flowers.  Check the soil pH before and during treatment (at least every 3 months): the optimum soil pH to ensure blue flowers is 4.5-5.5.  Do not reduce soil pH below this range as this could lead to plant damage.  It is best to apply many smaller treatments rather than a single large treatment.
