There are several tests you must do to find out the type of soil you have. Use each one to learn more about your soil and what you can grow in it.
For the walkover test you will need to go out onto the soil when it is moist and the plants are actively growing. (Not mid-winter)
For the hand test you will need to pick up a handful of soil from the area you wish to learn about. Make sure to wash your hand thoroughly when you have finished.
