What can I add to tap water to make it suitable for watering blueberries because I am running out rain water I have only about enough for two weeks. Regards Peter

    Let it stand for at least a day. You could try adding a couple of tea bags to raise the acidity a little.

    Have you got pine needles lying about? Even offer to brush up some from a neighbour?
