Home Garden Soil Testing

Garden soils should be tested about every 3 years.  Sampling early in spring or late fall assures you will have recommendations before buying fertilizer.

What is needed:  Approximately 2 cups of soil (dry).  Put soil into a zip top plastic bag and bring it to the Door County Extension Office.  A short form is completed to be sent with your sample.  The cost is $15.00/sample, plus $2.00/sample for postage.  Results are usually processed within 10 working days.  If you would like more information, please contact the Extension Office at 920-746-2260.   More specific information can be found at the UW Soils Lab website:  http://uwlab.soils.wisc.edu/
