Before planting a tree or garden, Farmer's Nursery recommends testing your soil for pH as well as nutrients. The best and easiest way is to fill out a soil submission form, take a sample and send it to the Texas A&M Agrilife Extention Soil, Water, and Forage Testing Laboratory. If you have an existing garden, and you feel like it is not producing as it should, it is best to rule out any acidity issues or mineral deficiencies in your soil. Let the experts help!
