Soil Amendments

            A bag of high calcium lime on the garden is a must here in West Michigan because our levels of calcium are so low. Apply at a rate of 10 to 20 pounds per one thousand sq.ft.

            Lastly, and this will be the icing on the cake, an application of good organic garden fertilizer tilled into the soil seven to ten days before planting will assure all Phosphorus, Potash and half of the Nitrogen, levels will be right up there while the young plants are growing. In six to eight week, when roots and foliage established the other half or the nitrogen can be added.

            You are now ready for extreme success. The neighbors might even think you have been gardening for years.
