“If you have not taken a soil test in the lawn, garden or orchard in the last three years, do so this year.”
This is from the Garden Guide for Austin and Vicinity, Fourth Edition, by the Travis County Master Gardeners Association.
“Soil Testing sample bags and forms are available at the Travis County Agrilife Extension Office: 512-854-9600.
Having your soil tested is a good start toward growing a beautiful landscape or bountiful garden.
Soil reports provide basic information on the nutritional condition of the soil. Necessary corrections can then be made to avoid poor plant growth and loss of yield.”
