Test Results.

I took three soil samples from my plot this morning (one from each main bed) and tested each for:
  • Acidity (pH)
  • Nitrogen (N)
  • Phosphorus (P)
  • Potassium (K)
Acidity, phosphorus and potassium levels are all acceptable.  Nitrogen levels were low in all three samples so I will fertilise the soil with some chicken manure.


  1. Oh my you are 'posh' looks very technical. But good for you. Your plot will the very productive for doing so I am sure

  2. Graeme, what sort of kit did you use? The only tests I've done in the past have indicated pH only. I'd be interested to check my beds in a similar fashion to you.

  3. I used this one

  4. Thanks for that, I've ordered one up.
