Soil pH Test
Testing your soil pH should be a routine task for gardeners. It is also a fun task if you test it yourself. Even if your garden has been productive over the years, soil testing can be beneficial. Soil pH can get out of balance for a number of reasons. Most often, using inorganic fertilizers will make your soil more acidic over time. Adding amendments to the soil can also alter your soil’s pH. If you do not test your soil occasionally, you are passing by the opportunity to maximize your plants’ potential in the size, health and quality of flowers, vegetables and fruits.
We offer complimentary soil Ph tests and guidance on corrective actions; all you have to do is provide a soil sample. We recommend you take the sample of soil from the approximate area where the roots will be, at least 2” below the soil surface. Try your best to avoid touching the soil you plan to have tested. Using your bare hands to take the sample may alter the soil pH and give a false reading during the test. The soil sample should be supplied in a plastic baggie or plastic container, nothing metal.
