Host Richard Hentschel talks about great activities that can be done in the yard and garden. Soil testing is best done in the fall as the results will reflect what you have added or grown in your garden or shrub beds. How many samples you need depends on the yard itself. Trouble spots should be sampled separately. Test results will tell you how well you are doing and what might be added to improve your soils.
Green Side Up is a gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
