Soil pH Testing

Now that the dreaded beast Leylandii is down and we have moved the soil around I want to see what the pH of the soil is. Dependent on the results they will decide where I put the surplus soil and what I plant instead of the Leylandii.

I took three clumps of soil from the border where the Leylanddi was and one from the new veggie plot. These were riddled separately into clean pots ready to dry out before testing.
