Bonide Hydrated Lime Powder, 10 lbs.Strengthen your garden or potted plants with Bonide Hydrated Lime Powder. This helpful powder quickly raises soil pH, enabling your plants to grow stronger, as the product makes it easier for plant roots to intake nutrients. A soil 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 it to your desired pH. Generally, 3.5 pounds of hydrated lime per 70 square feet 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 around your potted plants, mix one tablespoon of this powder with one gallon of water and apply as you would normally water. Neutralize your soil acidity with this Hydrated Lime Powder.
