Ideal pH Levels for Fruit Trees

When a plant is in soil that is not optimized for it’s growth needs, essential minerals and nutrients become locked up in the soil, unavailable to the plant. If your fruit tree is not as healthy as it should be or if it doesn’t provide ample amounts of fruit, you should conduct a soil test to see if the soil pH level needs adjusting.
