PLANTS FOR ALKALINE SOILS

Plant growth is often reduced in alkaline soil, because water and essential nutrients aren’t able to easily penetrate the soil. This can lead to nutrient deficiency and stunted growth in plants. Amending the soil with acidic natural material like peat moss,or manure can help lower the PH level. Picking plants that thrive in High Alkaline soil can also help you get the beautiful garden you want.
