Excess organic material in soil test

Asked May 15, 2015, 1:06 PM EDT

Hi, My garden soil has an excess of organic material (15%) which has the chemistry very unbalanced. I would like to consult with someone on my options for growing with this soil, as well as possible methods for bringing it back into balance in the future. Thanks, Dave

Dave,

Fortunately you won't need to do anything special, you assay shows some minor nutrient ratios low. That said your soil will be good for most gardens just the way it is. So, we recommend doing nothing but planting what you want to.
