I want to plant some blueberries next spring in a patch of ground that was just tested at pH level 6.5. If I add sulphur and water now, can I get the pH down to the right level by March/April, when I assume I should plant the blueberries? If

Hi! I live in Brazil and here our winters are too mild. If I put ice cubes on the soil during the winter nights, do you think I can trick my blueberries into thinking that they are getting more chill hours? The roots would get colder
