Soil testing is a very important step to the success and maintenance of seeding.
Once the soil has been tested and the proper corrections made, the seed will then have an ideal growing medium for the best rate of success.
Your ideal pH range is your soil should be around 6.5.
Your soil test will not only indicate what you pH is, but will as well recommend amendments that directly improve the soil's nutritional condition. The deficiencies in nutrition can be modified and improved with Bonide lime, fertilizer or nutrients.
