Soil test #806059

Asked August 13, 2022, 11:36 AM EDT

How do I go about getting a "home lawn and garden soil test " like in the past. The office in mt. Clemens seems to be unmanned. I've left messages to every phone number I have to no avail. Is the test still being offered? If not, what do you advise? If so , can you please direct me. Thanks

I am so sorry to report that, after doing some detective work, I have learned that we are currently not offering the home soil testing kits. If something changes I will definitely let you know. I’m quite surprised to say the least.
