Soil PH and Healthy Garden Crops

When it comes to the health of your garden crops and yielding an abundant harvest throughout the growing season, soil pH is key. Soil testing is an important part of your garden planning. Do you know what to look for and how to test your soil?

Learn the difference between acid and alkaline soil and why you need to know this in order to have a healthy productive garden. Once you know the condition of your soil, you will then need to know how to make the correct amendments to properly balance out the pH.

Regular soil testing will help you to keep on top of your soil's health, and will assist you in making the necessary changes to keep it healthy so your crops can access all the nutrients they need to flourish.
