To be sure about pH, test the soil with a pH meter. Apply fertilizer and lime using the results of the soil test as a guide.
To Measure Soil pH
It is recommended that you use a relatively inexpensive, and follow the manufacturers instructions when testing the pH Level of your Gardens soil. To raise or lower the pH level in the soil either Limestone or Sulfur is utilized. Other materials will accomplish the same results; however the two that are listed are the most commonly used.
Limestone is added to the soil to raise the pH level because limestone is essentially calcium and calcium reacts with water in the soil to yield hydroxyl ions .. a process known as, hydrolysis = thus the pH level in the soil is raised.
Sulfur reacts with bacteria in the soil and produces sulfuric acid, which releases hydrogen ions thus causing the soil to become more acidic =the pH level is lowered.
Application Of Lime (To Raise Soil pH)
To increase your pH by 1.0 point and make your soil more alkaline.
Application of Sulfur (To Lower Soil pH)
If your soil needs to be more acidic, sulfur will lower the pH if it is available.
To reduce the soil pH by 1.0 point
They will be among your last crops to survive the increasingly frequent fall frosts.
Choy is susceptible to rotting during hot and humid weather. It is strongly recommend that you do not plant Choy, in an area where other members of the cabbage family have been grown in the past two years. This will help to minimize plant disease.
As all cabbage, remove the roots of Pak Choy from the Garden and discard them, do not use for any use in composting, as the cabbage family are subject to disease and will contaminate the compost
