    Hello, is sulfur ok to use in an organic vegetable garden? Or would something like dynamic lifter be more natural?
    The organic soil i received for the garden is too alkaline.

      Hi, yes sulphur is good to use. Its a vital element for plant growth and very helpful for reducing ph that is a bit high, ie over 7 if if you are growing plants that prefer acidic soil such as bluberries, you lower your ph below 6 with sulphur. Adding organic matter through, green manuring, compost and stimulating soil life through addition of biodynamic preparations will ultimately reduce ph and bring it into balance for what you are doing but when you start a patch and check you ph, sulphur helps. I hear some gardeners experience quite high ph from brought in garden soil so I suggest if buy soil from a nursery, always check the ph before you buy.
