We do not offer soil testing. However, see the soil testing link below on our website. Begin by reading our soil testing fact sheets HG 110 “Selecting & Using a Soil Testing Lab” & HG 110a “List of Regional Soil Testing Laboratories”. You can also view our Video “How To Take A Soil Sample “and FAQ’s. Select a regional soil testing lab, download their forms, and submit your soil samples with a check to the lab. A cup of soil is needed for each garden area or bed that you test. You can use a ziploc bag to send in each soil sample. Results of the soil test will give pH, liming, and nutrient deficiencies. You can submit another question, if you need interpretation of the soil test results. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/soils/soil-testing mh
