Garden Lime by Espoma is an all natural plant supplement formulated to raise soil pH. Along with adjusting the pH of excessively acidic soils, it will also turn blue hydrangeas pink. Pelletized for easy application, it is much safer than hydrated lime.
Use in Early Spring, Late Spring and Fall for best results. When applying to garden beds, broadcast evenly over the soil surface and water thoroughly. For individual plant application, spread evenly under the plant out to and just beyond the drip line, and water thoroughly.
Garden Lime can be used anywhere in the garden and landscape where a higher (less acidic) soil pH is desired.
How to: In the absence of a soil test, mix 2 ½ to 5 lbs. per 100 sq. ft. (2-4 tbsps. per plant) into the soil. Water thoroughly. Or, use the guidelines below to achieve a pH of 6.5:
|Current pH||Per 100 sq. ft.||Per 100 sq. ft.|
|6.0||3 ½ lbs.||5 cups|
|5.5||7 ½ lbs.||10 cups|
|5.0||11 lbs.||15 cups|
|4.5||15 lbs.||20 cups|
Garden Lime is available for both in store pickup or delivery.
