Good gardens mean good soil. To learn more about soil, join us for “Advanced Garden Soil Fertility” presented by Shannon Blocker, Frontier Extension District Horticulture Agent. Soil is one of the most important factors in a successful garden, whether you are growing vegetables, fruits, herbs or ornamentals. Both physical properties and fertility are significant, but fertility improvements are more practical and can be made on a shorter time line. Understanding the calibration and correlation of soil test results for specific nutrients and how to calculate fertilizer recommendations when using a variety of sources, including organic materials, can be useful when educating others and while making decisions in your own garden. Knowing how to properly calibrate your fertilizer application equipment is also important so you evenly apply the calculated amount. Advanced training participants will learn the “why” and “how to” in regards to garden soil fertility.
