Dolomite Lime. 16 oz. Small pellet size. Slow dissolving to last over time.

The major component of soil health is soil pH. Most plants do best with a pH of 6.0 to 7.4. Always consider any specific needs of your plants before adding any soil amendments.

 

Benefits of Dolomite (Dolomitic) Lime are:

 

  • To raise pH and for longer lasting pH stabilization.
  • Natural source for calcium and magnesium.
    • Calcium helps build strong stems and leaves, strengthens the plants’ vascular system, helps with water and other minerals uptake, and results in stronger, more disease–resistant plants.
    • Magnesium is a key mineral for healthy soil, plays a key role in photosynthesis process of plants, and is vital in overall systems of plant growth.
  • Encourages micro-organism growth that contributes to plant health. Plants will thrive with a combination of helpful micro-organisms and soil with a balanced pH.

 

How to use:

  • Gardens: Spread evenly over surface of soil. Water thoroughly.
  • Individual Plants: Spread evenly starting at soil/ground level next to main plant crown, spread out to edge of pot or just beyond drip line. Water thoroughly.
