Get a soil test this fall and avoid the spring rush. Fall testing also allows time to amend soil long before planting. To get a soil test, contact your local Virginia Cooperative Extension office! A routine test package costs only $10 and can tell you a lot about your soil! Find your office here: www.offices.ext.vt.edu/A soil test will let you know if your soil is missing any important nutrients that plants need to grow. If you are missing something important (for example, calcium or nitrogen), that deficiency will limit how well your plants can grow.For example, this barrel represents soil with a deficiency. You can only fill the barrel up as high as that deficient slat will allow. Repair that slat (or amend your soil to "fix" the deficiency) and you will increase the capacity of the barrel-(or you will increase your soil's ability to let plants grow)!This concept is called Liebig's law of the minimum!And more on soil tests through VCE: www.soiltest.vt.edu/ ...
