Can I grow Truffles?

Our truffle trees are popular and successful gifts for all different types. The one question we are often asked though is can I grow truffles on my land?  Well, the best land for truffle growing should be free from established trees and have a high pH value (7.3-8.3).   Soil with quite a low pH level can be utilised as long as adequate lime is applied. Truffles have been grown on fields with a starting pH as low as 4.9 (before lime was spread). The pH can be estimated using simple kits available from most garden centers.
