I just did a little soil test on a bed in my yard where the plants
are not doing as well as the rest of the garden--kind of stunted.
I haven't done the full-blown test where you send the dirt off to Auburn
to get the 3 page report-just a quick store-bought test for N-P-K & PH.
The nitogen and potassium are supposed to be depleted, while PH and phosporous are fine.
Any fertilizer suggestions you have would be welcome. I have never bought much fertilizer, just amending with compost has always seemed to work fine in the past. This bed happens to have some boxwood shrubs on the edge, and I wonder if they have been hogging nutrients. I also wonder if I can use a bag of 22-3-16 lawn fertilzer I have had in the garage for about 8 years, or if I should throw the ammonia smelling stuff away, as I am inclined to do.
Hope y'all have been enjoying the relatively cool nights and mornings.
