Bonide Hydrated Lime Powder, 10 lbs.Strengthen your garden or potted plants with Bonide Hydrated Lime Powder. Derived from ground limestone, this hydrated lime powder quickly raises soil pH enabling your plants to grow stronger by making it easier for the plant roots to take up nutrients in the soil. A pH of 6.5 to 7.0 is considered to be neutral, although 5.8 to 7.0 is considered suitable for most garden crops and lawns. After performing a soil test to determine your soil pH, simply apply the correct amount of Hydrated Lime required to adjust the desired pH of the soil in your garden and work into the soil. Generally, 3.5 lbs of hydrated lime per 70 sq. ft. will raise the pH unit measure one point on the pH scale and can be applied anytime during the growing season. To annually improve the soil of your potted plants, mix one tablespoon of Bonide Hydrated Lime in one gallon of water and apply as you would normally water. Neutralize your soil acidity with Bonide's Hydrated Lime Powder.
