4126Re: Soil Regeneration and pH
- Apr 4, 2004---I know I beat this horse far too much, but I do have to say I do
not worry about pH. The more organic material is in my soil, the most
forgiving I find the plants and soil to be in that regard.
This does not completely cover plants that truly need highly acidic or
neutral soils, but then, I prefer to grow the natives, anyway. <G>
However, I do "stand on my stand" of organic quantity being a very
good "cushion" for differing pH soil levels.
I took a look at a soil survey map of my area- the different types of
soils are across the board. In checking out the soils on these few
thousand acres I have access to, I find every kind of "pH specific"
plant and inherent soil.
I do my wildgardening, along with my domestic gardening, and many
gradiations between the two. I truly have to say that my experience
is: get the soil healthy and full of good organic matter and critters,
you might be surprised at the range of "pH specific" plants you can
grow just fine. deb
