How to check your soil
1. Take a sample of soil from about 4″ below the surface.
2. Remove the cap from the tube and remove the capsule.
3. Fill the tube with soil to the first line. Carefully open the
capsule and pour the powder into the tube.
4. Add water (preferably bottled) to the fourth line. Replace
the cap and shake the tube thoroughly. Allow the soil to
settle and then compare the colour of the solution to the
pH colour chart on the front
How to alter pH
Altering pH does take time, so do not expect a rapid change. Rather work steadily towards giving the plant their ideal conditions. After adding lime or sulphur to your soil, re-test for pH level in approximately 30 days
