When you know what's great and what’s not in your garden soil, you can save yourself a pile of frustration. Forget waiting for expensive lab analysis or guessing why your tomatoes aren't looking so perky.
These simple, affordable soil test kits make it easy to discover what nutrients you might be missing. Read More
Nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K) and most micronutrients are dissolved easily in water and taken up by plant roots when soil pH is in a neutral range of 6.0-7.0. If the growing environment is too acidic (below 6.0) or too alkaline (above 7.5), your plants, your food and your family might be missing out, even if all the right nutrients are present in your soil.
A quick scan with an instant-read device or paper test strips will tell you exactly where you stand, and some also offer N-P-K levels. From there, you can add amendments accordingly so your garden soil is at ideal levels.
If you're looking to support crops or flowers that require more acidic conditions, like blueberries or rhododendrons, these tools will let you know if you’re on the right track.
Moisture meters also come handy for knowing at a glance how much water is actually making it to the roots of your plants.
These lightweight, handy instruments are easy to carry in a back pocket or tool belt, ready to help you garden more intelligently.
Allows you to monitor pH, moisture, light intensity and total combined NPK.
