Soil Adjustments


Plant growth is highly responsive to proper soil reaction to PH in the soil and ample supplies of nutrients, such as Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium. Send samples of your soil to your local County Agricultural Extension Agent; for a modest fee you will get excellent advice as to how to adjust your soil for maximum productivity of the plants you want to grow. Lime sweetens the soil if it is too acidic, increasing the availability of nutrients. Sodium reduces excess alkalinity. Fertilizer hastens and promotes growth. All should be used carefully, according to directions.

I want to blog about my few experiences growing plants and using compost. I found your blog through blogcatalog.com and it looks nice and practical. I will try to keep up with your advice and see how it works for my gardening begginings. I heard it's relaxing (hopefully as much as a good ride)
Thanks
