Description

Dolomite Lime

Dolomite Lime-is a common and valuable soil amendment used in gardening and agriculture. It is primarily composed of calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate, both of which are essential nutrients for plant growth.

Benefits of Dolomite Lime:

  • pH Perfection: Dolomite Lime is your ticket to achieving the ideal pH level in your soil. It balances acidity and alkalinity, ensuring the perfect environment for plant growth.
  • Magnificent Magnesium: Unlike its calcitic counterpart, Dolomite Lime boasts generous amounts of magnesium, a critical mineral for cultivating healthy, nutrient-rich soil.
  • Nutrient Uptake: Magnesium supports the efficient absorption of essential nutrients by your plants, maximizing their growth potential.
  • Enhanced Soil Structure: fine particles improve soil structure, promoting better water retention and aeration for robust root development.
  • A Thriving Garden: Experience lush, vibrant gardens with plants that flourish in magnesium-rich, pH-balanced soil.

Using Dolomite Lime:

1. Soil Testing: Begin by conducting a soil test to determine your garden’s pH levels. Aim for a neutral pH of around 6.5 for most plants.

2. Calculation: Based on your soil test results, calculate the amount needed to raise or lower the pH as required. A general guideline is 2 to 3 pounds per 100 square feet (or 1 to 1.5 kg per 10 square meters) for minor adjustments.

3. Application: Evenly spread the calculated amount across the soil surface in your garden bed.

4. Incorporation: Gently work into the soil using a rake or garden fork, ensuring thorough mixing to reach the root zone.

5. Reevaluation: Re-test the soil’s pH levels after several months to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments.

6. Ongoing Maintenance: Maintain soil pH and magnesium levels by reapplying as needed, typically every 1-2 years.

7. Magnesium Boost: For magnesium-hungry plants like tomatoes and peppers, apply specifically around their root zones for optimal growth.
