Soil Doctors are a team of scientists and trained technicians, committed to delivering a professional service to gardeners, unlike any previously available. We provide a unique consulting service utilising Portable X-Ray Flouresence (PXRF) instruments to provide accurate, cost effective and timely solutions.
Understanding the composition of your soil and the health of your growing environment can provide great benefits;
* Identifying nutrient deficiencies and imbalances
* Maximising growth and yields under particular conditions
* Saving money by only purchasing inputs that will provide benefits
* Reducing fertiliser leaching into groundwater and waterways
* Identifying harmful toxins that can be taken up by your plants
Whilst there are basic soil test kits available at retail outlets and online, they provide limited information and rarely offer meaningful solutions. Traditional lab testing, on the other hand, can be expensive, time consuming and, to the uninitiated poses the question..."WHICH TESTS DO I ASK FOR?" Lab results can be also be confusing and lead to more questions rather than solutions.
Soil Doctors offer a different approach. With the latest in non-destructive, environmentally friendly testing technology, our qualified technicians can provide a comprehensive analysis and site specific management plan to optimise healthy, sustainable growth. Our services are accessible and affordable.
We are deeply concerned about the environmental impacts of incorrect fertilising and believe we can all benefit by adopting a more scientific, evidenced based approach to our gardens.
We believe understanding is the precursor to positive change.
