The Soil pH Meter is quick and easy to use to assist measuring the pH of your soil. Essential for optimum growth.
Simple to use, no battery required.
Instant acid or alkaline reading.

Push the probe into the soil up to about 12cm deep and wait 60 seconds to take a reading. Take two to three readings in different places.
A reading of 7 is pH neutral.
