The real questions might begin with: is a gardening zone 6b worth the buy? What are the benefits of purchasing a gardening zone 6b garden and specifically the top one? Will a gardening zone 6b, which is considered highly acidic soil, provide good growing conditions for my tomato plants? The answers to these and many more questions must be addressed before a garden plan is created.
The first question to answer is if a gardening zone 6b, which is considered extremely acidic, is beneficial or not? A large percentage of the country is in the colder areas, where it does not receive enough rainfall. For example, in my area, about half of our year is either cold and snowy. The warm-season vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers, squash, and cucumbers do not do well in this type of environment. On the other hand, the warm season vegetables like green beans, onions, and broccoli love the warmer climes and thrive.
The second question to answer is if a gardening zone 6b, which is considered highly alkaline, is better than no gardening zone 6b at all? Research has shown that although the soil pH may have slightly increased due to the warm-season conditions, alkalinity has decreased due to the fact that there is no longer any moisture in the soil. Therefore, the amount of nutrients available per square foot has actually decreased due to the lack of moisture.
