Question and Answer:

Question: Why doesn't my plants grow well?

Answer: Ms Faith Foo - The main reason is usually down to a few key ones. The soil could have been over or underdose with fertiliser. The most common mistakes is that gardeners and farmers overdose fertiliser. This tends to cause the soil to be thrown out of balance. One of the common mistakes is people throw a lot of egg shells into the soil. What they do not know is that overdosing calcium will throw magnesium out of balance in the soil. You may think your plants don't have enough magnesium, but they do not know the source of the problem is actually overdosing calcium!

Question: I actually do not know what minerals are inside my soil?

 Answer: Ms Faith Foo - Alot of growers do not bother do test their soil. But a well-skilled grower actually needs to know his soil very well. We will teach you how to do an analysis of your soil. No more guess work!
