5 TIPS TO UPDATING YOUR GARDEN FOR THE FALL MONTHS
  1. Loosen the soil and carry out a pH test

During the course of the summer, the soil in your garden will have compacted. In preparation for the fall planting season, you need to loosen the soil enough to allow the plant’s roots and water to move freely. A garden fork is enough to loosen up the soil since you don’t need a lot of tilling. The soil should also be tested to check the level of acidity or basicity. The ideal soil pH for planting should be between 6 and 7. If the pH is below six, then lime should be added to increase the pH. If the pH is higher, elemental sulfur should, instead, be added to reduce the pH.
