Rita and I have been discussing soil testing kits. I did some research online on Sunday and got more informed about this. I’ve used the cheap simple one with 4 little glass vials, 4 capsules in 4 different colours. One simply put a soil sample in the vial, adds the powder in the capsule and distilled water up to a certain line. Shake and set aside for a few minutes.
Then you hold it up against the colour chart on the backing card and tells you how high or low your PH balance is, your nitrogen, your phosphorous, and your potash. But I’ve learned that this simple test kit is not very accurate.
