WHY TEST YOUR SOIL?

Plants need the correct pH (acidity/alkalinity) level which controls how well plants utilize the nutrients available in your soil. All plants have a pH preference, so it is important to know the pH level of your soil. You can then choose plants with the same pH preferences, avoid those that will not do well in your soil or know how to go about supplying thei special growing needs. By testing your soil, you determine its exact condition so that you can fertilize and/or adjust pH more accurately, effectively, and economically.

 

WHEN TO TEST YOUR SOIL

Soil should be tested periodically troughout the growing season, but it is especially recomended to test before planting in Spring and when preparing beds in Fall. And, if you feel your plants are not growing well, a soil test may help.
