I have heard that tomato plants like an acidic soil. Is this right and if so how do I obtain this? Thanks.

Tomatoes grow best in soil with a pH of 6.0 to 6.5 which is just a bit on the acid side. They grow fairly well down to 5.0 and up to 7.5
To raise the acidity of soil, you can mix in some peat moss.

You can buy tomato fertilizer that is with the Miracle Gro products, or you can buy Miracid and use it on tomatoes and on hydrangeas, rhodies, azaleas and evergreens.
