I'm in the GTA and would like to get a soil test of my garden soil. Any idea of how to go about doing this...a lot of Americans say their states offer free soil tests, any idea of this is the case around these parts??
The civic garden centre - called now the Toronto Botanical Gardens - used to do this. I'm not sure if they still do. But...
A response from one of the discussions in their forums on their website:
"I got the soil test results back from A&L Laboratories in London. they were very fast. I tested 6 different areas of my garden."

I doubt that there are free services here in the GTA. You could also do this on your own using a kit bought from any hardware store or garden centre.
