Just a reminder… Gardening can be a dirty business! We recommend using gardening gloves and washing your hands afterwards. Use with adult supervision and store in a dry area away from kids and pets.

We highly recommend that you have your soil tested first before adjusting the pH. This allows you to know what your baseline pH is, as well as what type of soil you have. The optimum pH for most plants is between 6 and 7. This range allows for the best plant uptake of nutrients from the soil and is the best for beneficial soil microbes. The type of soil you have also impacts how much sulfur is needed to successfully change the pH to the desired range.

How to test soil: Get samples of your soil by going out into the area and taking several samples along the edges and center. Then, send these away for an official soil analysis. If you don’t know where to send your soil for analysis, contact your local county extension agent. This analysis will also tell you what type of soil you have and other nutrient information along with the pH. There are also home test kits that are available to check pH.
