Default pH of Ericaceous Compost

Thanks for the pH reading, Franz. As for the electric probe, your advice
has come too late! I bought one of these at Christmas and I agree that
they're worthless. I tested it with water, vinegar, and soil that I knew
was acidic, but the needle never moved from neutral.

Not completely useless. Ours never reads 'owt but 6.8 - although it does
waggle occasionally.
But it has a useful life because I find it perfect for pricking-out
seedlings!
