Spring planting season will be here before we know it. If you haven’t amended your garden(s), now is the time. Consider doing a soil test to determine what your garden really needs. We sell a soil test kit ($6.69) that will give you the current ph, nitrogen, phosphate and potash levels. There are many companies that perform soil testing, but I’ve found two of the best are Texas A&M and Texas Plants & Soil Lab. Soil testing only needs to be done about every 5 years.
The results of these soil testing will help you chose the right amendments to to your beds. The most common amendments are compost, peat moss, coconut fiber, perlite, vermiculite, expanded shale, molasses, sulfur, lava and green sand and of course fertilizer. The best yields will come from the garden with the most complete soil.
Wells Brothers sell all the soil amendments and a wide selection of fertilizers. Stop in and talk to our experts about your soil and garden needs.
