Soil pH Meter
No battery required!
A simple and efficient device to determine the pH of your garden soil. Can also be used for house plants. Gives instant acid or alkaline reading. No battery required. Always clean and dry the probe before storing in a dry place.
pH (acidity /alkalinity) levels control how well plants absorb and utilize nutrients available in the soil.
3 – 7 reading represents Acid pH
7 – reading represents Neutral pH
7 – 10 reading represents Alkaline pH
The optimal pH range for most plants is between 5.5 and 7.0. However there are many plants which have adapted to live and thrive at pH values outside this range. It is recommended to test soil pH levels throughout the season but it is especially useful before planting or when the plants are not performing well.

How to take a pH reading:
1. Make sure the soil is moist and the probe is clean.
2. Push the probe into the moist soil up to about 12cm/5in deep and wait 60 seconds to take the reading. Take two or three readings from different places.
To make the soil more alkaline, for every 1 pH add approx. 300g per square meter of garden lime. To make the soil more acid, for every 1 pH add approx. 70g per square meter of sulphate of ammonia. Retest for pH level in 30 days. Altering pH does take time, please do not expect too rapid change. Work steadily towards giving the plant the ideal conditions. Always check plant pH requirements.
