In general you think of yourself as savvy gardener, you utilize homemade compost, companion planting and the square foot gardening approach. But have you ever considered the role of pH in your gardening endeavors? Consider that pH plays the single most influential role underground to the health and vigor of your garden.
If the proper pH is not maintained nutrient lock out will ensue. As a result, plant growth will be low and slow, plants will become sickly turning out very low yields, and be much less resistant to disease and pests.
Most plants prefer a slightly acidic pH ranging from 5.5 to 6.5. Tap water, nutrient inputs, growing media and the type and vigor of the plants growing are just a few things that affect this environment. To learn how to properly measure and maintain this utopian pH with maximum nutrient availability, vigorous growth and high yields stop by any of our Way to Grow locations and speak with the most knowledgeable staff in the industry.
We are locally owned and operated, and can be found giving back to our communities. Some of our favorite community activities include contributing to educational gardening projects, food pantries, locally grown food for schools and opportunities for veterans.
