Now’s a good time to collect soil samples for your lawn, gardens, and shrubs and have them analyzed by the University of Arkansas. Your soil sample report should be back within two weeks. If the report calls for lime to reduce soil acidity, apply it in the fall. The lime will have several months to work before spring growth begins.
For more information on soil testing, and to pick up the containers, contact Brad Runsick at the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension office at 870- 425-2335; or stop by the Extension Office at 3 East 9th St., Mountain Home.
