April is National Garden Month. Get your garden going with the pH water each type of plant prefers.
The water I use, Kangen Water®, revitalizes weak plants, stimulates seed germination and aids seedling development.
Plants that Prefer Slightly Alkaline Water (pH 8.5 - 9.5)
Most of these plants show optimal growth in the 7.5 - 8.5, so you can experiment between 8.5 and neutral water (pH 7.0) to find the best results. The pH of your soil will have a big impact on which water you should use. These plants include: asparagus, beets, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, carrots, mushrooms, parsley, geraniums, irises, phlox, vinca, hydrangeas (for pink blooms), and lilacs. Hydrangeas are a rare plant, as the pH of your water will change the color of the blooms.
Plants that Prefer Slightly Acidic Water (pH 4.0 - 6.0)
Some plants prefer slightly acidic water and soil: rhododendrons, begonias, azaleas, heathers, hydrangeas (for blue blooms), peanuts, cucumbers, potatoes, dill, leeks, chili peppers, eggplant, garlic, chives, artichoke, tomatoes, and most berries. Roses grow most vibrantly with pH 5.5 - 6.5, so you may want to experiment with slightly acidic water (set at pH 6.0) and neutral water (pH 7.0) to see which one yields the healthiest roses with your particular soil. Remember to always take into consideration the pH of your soil when you choose which water to use on your plants.
Plants that Prefer Neutral Water (pH 7.0)
Many vegetables and plants thrive in a neutral pH. These plants include spinach, parsnips, dahlias, chrysanthemums, brussels sprouts, sweet peas, broccoli, asparagus, beans, avocado, cantaloupe, kiwi, mint, lettuce, onions, yams, radishes, squash, bell peppers, and tulips. Use neutral water to keep these plants hydrated and healthy.
No matter which Kangen Water® pH level you choose for your garden, you can have peace of mind that your plants will be healthy with this clean, high-quality water. Think of how delicious your fruits and vegetables will taste after they've been watered with pH water they prefer instead of chlorinated tap water.
Happy Earth Day!
