Gardening Australia - - YOUR PLANNER -

If you don’t know the pH of your soil, it’s worth find­ing out as it can af­fect the types of plants that you are able to grow. Take about half a dozen soil sam­ples from dif­fer­ent parts of the gar­den, as soil pH can vary from place to place. Keep the sam­ples la­belled to iden­tify which sec­tion they come from. Most gar­den cen­tres will do a pH test for you, but check with them first. Al­ter­na­tively, in­vest in your own ba­sic pH test kit and do the test your­self, fol­low­ing the sim­ple in­struc­tions on the packet.
