This is a great kit. I am currently doing a degree and one of the topics was related to a hedgerow surveys. Anyway this kit was great for testing many soil samples. Really well thought out, you really do get alot for your money. And I love the little cards that tell you everything you need to know about substances in the soil.
The only issue is the soil auger, a metal one would be better, but that is a minor detail in the scheme of things.
Certainly recommend to others, it's worth paying a few extra £ for this kit over others.

Basic kit but does produce usable results easily. Would help if the comparison charts were linked to the chemicals by cap colour as well as by name. No suggestion what the test chemicals are or if replacements are available. Would also be useful if an accuracy rating was given for the kit. A couple of niggles. The dropper has stuck inside cap of one bottle, and the all the equipment is set in a flimsy plastic base which does not hold some of the items very well. It would also be useful if the comparison booklet also indicated useful sources for the missing or low elements or ph.

Defective Product. I could not get the kit to measure N or K. It showed zero colouring for N and always the same slightly pink colour for K for all soil samples. I was suspicious so I made a control test using fertiliser and it showed the same results. I then tested it on distilled water and again got same results. I then borrowed a different kit from my neighbour and his showed medium readings for N & K using my original soil sample. The kit clearly does not work so I will try to get a refund.
Worked OK for P & pH although colour obtained for pH was outside the range given on the chart so how do I interpret the result?

This is a very poor product!

Useful kit. Auger not quite lived up to it's name but trowel is sufficient. Kit is really a "mini-professional" as goes beyond the usual acid-alkali test and enables testing of trace elements. 10 tests for each.

As a gardener its really handy to be able to take soil samples and test them myself to see what needs adding to make the plants grow better, customers think its fab too,

Just what I wanted, easy to use and not too big to store. Would recommend this product for soil testing.

I think that this is an excellent kit. It arrived on time. It is very neatly packaged and the instructions are clear. I've only used it once for a ph test so far but happy with the process and the results.

No spatulas were included. Without these you cannot measure accurate quantities. Wrote to . manufacturers requesting spatulas (they are small plastic things, must cost a few pence at most) but no reply. Am left £30 out of pocket with a useless paperweight. Would have been much better off using the RHS service, which costs the same.

Decent instructions but inner packaging a little flimsy.
