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.┬áIf 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.
