Unless someone's growing on marl or chalk soils, calcium is always the first cation to become depleted. It's always the one that needs to be added back the most. The old expression goes "Manuring...

NPK looks to be 1.54-0.16-0.40 from the dry weight basis. Alright on the nitrogen, but somewhat low for the P&K. pH is also a bit low - ideal is of course around 6.5 or so. It's unfortunate your...

Mighty aluminium

Fun fact: In the days (decades past) of acid rain in the North East, the trees were dying not from the acid per se, but because the pH in the soil had dropped low enough to mobilize the aluminum.
