Next Year’s Garden: Soil Amendments

 Soil Amendments

Plant growth is highly responsive to proper soil reaction (pH) and to ample supplies of nutrients, particularly Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K). Send samples of your soil to your local County Agricultural Extension Agent; for a very modest fee you will get excellent advice as to how to amend your soil for maximum productivity of the plants you want to grow. Lime sweetens soil if it is too acid, increasing the availability of nutrients. Sulphur reduces excess alkalinity. Fertilizer hastens and promotes growth. All should be used carefully, according to directions.
