Tedious, Yet Effective
The instructions are pretty easy to follow. However, if you're doing all 10 tests correctly, it is a very tedious process if you have a lot of land. You should wait the 24 hours suggested after taking the samples to let them dry out completely first. Also, because there are only 4 tubes, you have to rinse them out thoroughly after every sample to make sure you don't contaminate the next one. It is a pretty cool throw back to high school chem lab - if you're into that kind of thing! :) Bottom line - it did give me the data I needed to grow a lush green lawn and garden. I just had to dedicate part of my Saturday (collection and drying) and all my Sunday morning and afternoon (testing all the samples for pH, Ni, Ph and Potassium) to complete all 40 tests.

This soil test kit is exactly what we were looking for. It is easy and kinda fun to use and it gave us good enough results for what a homeowner would be looking for from a soil test. After performing the test on our lawn we were able to correct the deficiencies by using the appropriate fertilizers and products. We still have plenty of tests remaining from that kit so it's great value for money! Give it a try.

    The Mosser Lee SoilMaster Testing Kit (model # ML1210) is an invaluable convenience for serious gardeners or lawn aficionados, but may seem a bit complicated or overwhelming for beginners or casual "weekend" gardeners to use successfully. My wife started gardening about two years ago and when her first efforts at growing vegetables and herbs didn't yield the results she was hoping for, she attended a few gardening workshops. Invariably, every class started with the admonition to test the soil. She was referred to the local university extension and master gardeners program to get a professional laboratory soil test, which sounds great, but requires sending a soil sample off in the mail and then waiting a week or more to get the results. The lag time can be a serious disincentive for hobby gardeners who just want to get on with planting. So when we found the Mosser Lee kit that allows you to test the soil by yourself when you have the time and not have to wait for results, my wife was eager to try it. We were especially pleased that a single kit includes 10 tests each for pH, Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium. What we liked: comprehensive instructions (well-written with helpful illustrations) printed in booklet format on laminated paperboard, so when you invariably get the booklet wet or dirty, you can just wipe it off. That may seem like a minor benefit, but when you're working with soil and water, it's essential. What we found frustrating: the process is not exactly fast or easy. Since you need to use dry soil, they recommend collecting soil and letting it dry overnight. This frustrated my wife because it extends the total elapsed time necessary for the test. The kit also assumes you have a few basic household items on hand (several plastic bags, a permanent marker to label the bags, small paper cups, plastic spoon(s), and three measuring spoons -- tablespoon, teaspoon, and 1/4 teaspoon -- that you can dedicate to soil testing.) They also assume you're ok with pinching the top of a paper cup to form a spout in order to pour soil solutions into the test tubes. We found using a mini funnel was easier and more accurate.

    I really like this soil test kit. It is great value and offers 10 tests for each of pH, Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium. - The tubes are well made and the caps are color coded to match the test being performed. - The tablets are well labeled and packaged such that you can use some and keep the rest for future use. - Instructions are clear but may be overwhelming if you try to read everything all together. Just follow the instructions step by step and you should be fine.

    So far, so good. I have wanted a chemical test to verify the accuracy of an electronic combo tester. This test set has more soil testing options than I was originally looking for, but it is great to have the options. The directions are clear and simple to follow. Also, the guide is printed on heavier, slick paper and appears that it will hold up over time. The tubes and caps are heavier duty than I expected. I was concerned that they'd be flimsy, but that is not the case. To my original purpose for getting the test kit, I did a pH test on a potted plant that has been struggling. My electronic tester showed a pH of 7 and this test kit confirmed it. The attached picture shows the tube against the provided test color chart.

    I received my soil test kit a week ago. I have a greenhouse , so I thought I should test my soil. My plants have been growing since May. It sounded a bit complicated when reading it at first. But I gathered my soil and stuck to the directions. Water , soil and a pill or 2 depending on test. I did the test for PH, Nitrogen , Phosphorus, and Potassium. It seems I am high on the PH, medium on the Nitrogen and Phosphorus and Potassium. I did not understand why the water is a peach color on Potassium and they want you to compare it to grey to black on the chart. I feel like a chemist. I'm still not sure what to do about it. I will keep reading.

    My wife has a Miniature Blood Orange tree that she has been trying to grow for the longest, to no avail. She is hoping this kit will ascertain what could possibly be the soil condition, or lack of conditions. She's excited to be able to use this as soon as it get colder in San Diego, Ca. She said the instructions are very well executed, and what is also offered is Web Site support. Good deal. Arrived well packed..

    All results are low, medium, and high. Soil would have to be really off to be anything other than medium.
