Q. Soil testing service--recommendations?

I have a terrace in manhattan and would like to get my soil tested for PH and presence of things like root rot and any other fungus. Is there a service you would recommend?


Hi Barbara,

The best source for soil testing for you is the Cornell Cooperative Extension Service of Westchester. Follow this link for their web page with instructions about how to collect and send a soil sample. You can indicate the type of testing you would like the soil to undergo.

Good luck! You are so smart to start a new season with a good basic analysis of your growing site.
