    Question

  • Hello! I got my soil test results back, but I don't understand them. Can you help? Best, Teresa
  • Answer

  • Hello Teresa, Yes, I would be able to help you with the soil test results. You won't be able to upload them through this site. However, if you can send me the results through email that should do the trick. Please send the results to--jrreilly2323@gmail.com. I look forward to helping you sort this out.

    Question

  • Do you all provide soil testing? And if so how do I sign up? Best, Katie
  • Answer

  • Hello Katie, We absolutely do provide soil testing. The master gardeners that provide Help Desk duties at the branch libraries all have soil sample kits for purchase. Call the branch nearest you and find out the Help Desk dates and times. The kit will describe exactly how to sample your soil and what the fees are. You can find the form to fill out here-- https://www.soiltest.vt.edu/content/dam/soiltest_vt_edu/PDF/SSIS-452-125.pdf, if you want a preview and a bit more information. Good luck with the testing and happy gardening!
