Question: My Texas A&M soil test showed a very high level of phosphorus (301). The report recommended avoiding “phosphorus-containing fertilizers and organics.” I have put a lot of tree leaves on my garden this year, and I have used Dynolite for mulch in past years. Are those items considered “organics” and will they increase the phosphorus levels in my garden?
