Description

Some subjects require high pH soils for optimum growing conditions e.g. carnations, brassicas. Apply in high amounts or a layer on a pot. These are also a form of calcium carbonate supplied in a small hard lump form. It is used to provide a constant background of “limey water” and is useful on subjects which prefer alkaline conditions like carnations, sweet peas, brassicas etc. Soils which are very free draining lose calcium and become acid, and will benefit from dressing of limestone chippings at a rate of 500 gms. of more per sq. m.

Lime (calcium) is quickly lost from the soil by leaching with water and chemical action from fertilizers. A slow acting type of limestone in a chipping form. Some subjects require high pH soils for optimum growing conditions e.g. carnations, sweet peas and brassicas. Apply in high amounts 500g per sq.m. or a layer on a pot to produce a constant stream of "lime" water to control pH.
