Soil test results question

Hello, we got our soil test results back last week on 7 different plots. Thanks for the detailed reports and recommendations. I do have some questions, though. I noticed that the report shows K, P, Zn, Mg, Ca, soil/buffer pH, and so on. Why are there no N levels? Is that because it's hard to get an accurate reading of N? Does it have to do with the Mehlich 3 testing? We live on a east facing slope, and I've noticed that the 5 plots highest on the hill have the lowest pH, ranging 4.9-5.1, and the nutrient levels are very low. However, the two lowest plots on the hill have a pH of 5.6 and 6.3, and very good nutrient levels. Is there an explanation for these discrepancies? My plot I'm planning to plant blueberries has a pH of 4.9, so it looks like I won't have to acidify it too much. The 5 higher plots have pretty low Ca, so I guess those will need liming. Which type do you recommend? OK, thank you for your time, and have a good day, Bob

Native plants for a slope

My cousin has a slope behind house that she would like to plant with plants for polinators. Currently covered in weeds. Is there anything she can scatter? What kind of prep would she need to ensure seeds would grow?
