Howdy BP People!

I'm wondering if anyone has done soil testing for their kohlrabi, and if so, were you aiming for pumpkin soil-like numbers? It seems as though kohlrabi wouldn't need as much calcium as pumpkins do.

I'm happy so far with my results of treating Cole's soil like pumpkin soil and utilizing the same amendments, wondering if anyone else here has experience with this?

Thank you in advance and hope you are having a good season!

I think I messed my cabbage & kohlrabi up with too much potassium, not enough boron. I think the cabbage family really loves calcium actually and a bit higher ph is ok but dont put much weight on what I think I know... I am quite far from being a cole crop guru. I've not had much luck with anything besides kale and broccoli. I will envy any success you have, good luck!!!

Thank you for the nice comment, Pirate!

Who knows, you could get another HD Award this season!
