Re: soil test results


Oh sure, unless I have to repot something. Those great big ones get
refreshed w/ the kelp and greensand and seem to do fine. I've had those
Herbalist roses in big pots on either side of the herb bed for 4 or 5
years and they grow WAY bigger than the 3 X 3 it said they would in the
Wayside catalog. They do get a little organic rose food twice a year
too. But I'm not going to have to fertilize anything in the ground for a
long time. Always knew that black clay was very fertile - making it
friable and bringing the pH down so the nutrients were available was the
big trick. Guess I've accomplished that! Gratifying it is. Makes this
sore shoulder and neck kinda worth it!!
