For a successful garden, understanding the contents of your soil is essential. Good soil is a vital aspect to growing healthy plants.
Luckily, soil testing is an simple and inexpensive way to test for nutritional deficiencies.
Soil testing kits can be purchased from your local nursery or home improvement store. The best time to test soil is either early spring or late fall.
Most plants grow best in soil that is in the 6.5-7.0 range. A large variety of fertilizers are available to address a wide range of nutritional deficiencies. We recommend bringing your soil test results into your local nursery and asking them to direct you to the best product suited for your needs.
