About Garden Lime
Limestone deposits were originally seabed’s where sea creatures such as snails, clams, corals, sea urchins, fish, and others lived and died millions of years ago. Their remains slowly built up layers of sediment thousands of feet thick These sediments are the limestone, and dolomite formations that are mined today.
Fine Lime is pulverised into fine particles the finer the particles the greater the surface area and quicker it breaks down in the soil.
Limestone is a natural source of calcium carbonate, the primary reasons for adding calcium carbonate to the soil is to raise its pH and provide plants the essential calcium (Ca) element.
Raising the pH in acidic soils improves soil microbial activity structure and the availability and uptake of major plant nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Because of its influence on the soil calcium is often referred to as the trucker of all other elements.
Yardlands Garden Lime is a fine spreadable granule one medium sized handful is about 80g.
