    water Who else has high PH public water?

    Try MgSulfate aka Epsom Salts 1table spoon per gallon. It seems to help here in the midwest with the combo of hard water and alkaline glacial till soils. I mix in some of the salt in the soil in spring and if I need to water the garden alot during the grow season I'll add some more.
