Too Much Nitrogen in Soil

Anonymous added on April 9, 2014 | Answered

I would like to plant some nitrogen fixing plants, such as clover and goumi bushes, near my fruit trees, but I'm concerned about developing too much nitrogen in the soil. How do I prevent this? How do I know when there's too much nitrogen? How do I know when there's too little?

The only way to know for sure is to have the soil tested, which will let you know the amounts of nutrients you have or are lacking. Generally, too much nitrogen will result in leaf yellowing or little to no flower or fuit production. For more information on nitrogen, these articles should help:,,
