Liming the soil

Thanks for the responses. I will check the soil pH before doing anything. It just seemed weird that many sellers don't list which and when to use 

1) dolomite magnesium lime

2) hydrated lime

3) ground limestone

4) calcified seaweed

Merry Christmas 

Liming the soil

Posted: 15/12/2012 at 14:14

Hi, 

I have recently acquired an allotment and want to increase the alkalinity of the soil for vegetable growing - the land is deficient after many years of being an allotment. I am manuring/adding compost regularly but wanted to know which of the following would be the best to use and what the differences are between them:

1) dolomite magnesium lime

2) hydrated lime

3) ground limestone

4) calcified seaweed

 

Thanks,

Cat
