Plant growth is often reduced in alkaline soil because water and essential nutrients can’t easily penetrate the soil. This can lead to nutrient deficiency and stunted growth in plants. Soil can be amended to lower the PH level. Picking plants that thrive in high alkaline soil can also help you get the beautiful garden you want.
AMENDING THE SOIL
Soil that has a high alkaline level can be amended using acidic materials. Adding peat moss and manure can help lower the PH levels. You can also add sulfur mixed with compost or aluminum sulfate.
