I tend to have very pale green leaf plants, which I believe are due to
deficiencies in soil content. What should I check the soil for? What
nutrients, preferably in natural form (such as composting) should I
consider adding? Any other suggestions? Thanks.
As I mentioned before, I am a beginner in these things. So please bear
with me if I ask whether the mentioned ' standard soil test', is
something which I can buy a kit to do myself, or is it a test to be
done by a professional in this field? Thanks

a Cycas Revoluta amongst others. The climate is a Mediterranean one,
relatively hot and humid. It tends to be relatively dry most of the
As regards the soil, it tends to be pale brown in colour, does not seem
'rich' to me. From what I can guess, it is deficient in certain
nutrients, iron amongst others. I would like to have a second opinion
from an experienced gardener before adding fertiliser or anything else.
