Westland Hydrangea Colourant 250gr


The “Westland Hydrangea Colourant 500g” is a product designed to modify the color of hydrangea flowers. Hydrangeas are known for their ability to change flower color based on the pH of the soil they are grown in. The availability of aluminum ions in the soil affects the color of the flowers:

Acidic soil (lower pH) with higher aluminum content tends to produce blue flowers.

Alkaline soil (higher pH) with lower aluminum content tends to produce pink flowers.

The Westland Hydrangea Colourant is formulated to lower the pH of the soil around hydrangea plants, making it more acidic and increasing the availability of aluminum. As a result, this product is often used to turn pink hydrangea flowers into blue ones.

Here are some key points to consider when using this product:

Application: The product is generally applied directly to the soil around the hydrangea plants. Follow the instructions provided on the product packaging for the correct dosage and application method.

Timing: For best results, the colorant should be applied during the active growing season of the hydrangea, typically in spring or early summer.

Color Transformation: The product’s effectiveness in changing flower color may depend on the original color of the hydrangea flowers and the soil’s starting pH. It might not produce the same results for all hydrangea varieties.

Precautions: While using the hydrangea colorant, it’s important to wear appropriate protective gear, such as gloves, to avoid skin irritation. Additionally, keep the product out of reach of children and pets.

Soil Testing: Before applying the colorant, it is recommended to test the soil’s pH to determine its current acidity level. This can help you understand the potential impact of the product on the flower color.

Note: Remember that hydrangeas are sensitive to soil pH changes, and excessive use of the colorant may harm the plant. Therefore, it’s essential to use the product as directed and avoid over-application. If you are uncertain about using the product, consult with a local gardening expert or horticulturist for guidance.
