Hi Vanessa, soils are typically alkaline if fresh manures have just been added. If this is the case, allow a few weeks for it to settle before planting. In the case that the soil is naturally alkaline (quite uncommon), you can use aluminium sulphate as a shock therapy, but we’d recommend incorporating compost and other organic matter to address the imbalance slowly but surely.

Do you have any advice on what to do if the ph test results show soil is too alkaline and how to bring it back to neutral?
