Soil Test Kits

What's missing from your soil? Find out with our affordable soil test kits. Creating the correct balance is critical to success.

Why should I test my soil?
Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium (N, P & K) are the essential nutritional building blocks for all plants. In order to optimize your plants health there needs to be a balance of these minerals in your soil.

When should I test?
While periodic testing throughout the growing season is recommended, it is crucial to test your soil before planting in Spring and when preparing beds in Fall.

About N-P-K and pH
N – Nitrogen Nitrogen is responsible for producing leaf growth and green leaves. Too little and leaves turn yellow and the plant's growth is stunted. Too much and you'll have lots of foliage but delayed flowering and poor quality fruit.
P – Phosphorus Phosphorus is a major player in plant genetics and seed development. It also aids in plant maturity and disease resistance while increasing fruit development and seed yield.
K – Potassium Potassium (Potash) strengthens the plant as it aids in early growth, stem strength and improves the color and flavor of fruit. Not enough potassium will result in plants that are stunted and have poorly developed root systems.
pH This is a balance of acidity and alkalinity in the soil that affects how well your plants absorb the available nutrients. All plants have a preference for a certain pH level. Knowing what the pH level is for your soil can make it easier to determine what plants will thrive and provide a guideline for adjusting the pH level to accommodate specific plants.
