How do I find out what pH my plants should be

Submitted: 06:10PM, 11 Feb 2015
Answer: Plants prefer soils with different pH due to many factors. The most common reason being that nutrients become more available to plants at different pH levels, and plants have evolved to cope with these conditions. Most plants like a neutral or slightly acidic soil as most nutrients are available to the plants at this level. Information about how acidic or alkaline a plant likes soil is usually provided on labels and packets.
You can test you soils pH using a kit which is available at most garden centres.
