Agricultural lime is a soil amendment that can be used to improve soil quality and promote healthy plant growth in your garden. The lime works by increasing the soil's pH level, which in turn makes essential nutrients more readily available to plants.

*Also known as: Athletic Meal or Mix, Limestone Sand, Infield Sand, Agg Meal or Lime

Here are some steps to take when using agricultural lime in your garden:

Test your soil: Before applying agricultural lime, it's important to test the pH level of your soil. You can purchase a soil testing kit from a garden center or have your soil tested professionally. If your soil pH is below 6.0, it may benefit from an application of agricultural lime.

Determine the amount of lime needed: The amount of agricultural lime needed will depend on the pH level of your soil and the type of plants you are growing. A general rule of thumb is to apply 5-10 pounds of lime per 100 square feet of garden space for every 1 point increase in pH desired. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for the specific product you are using.

Apply the lime: Agricultural lime can be applied to your garden by scattering it evenly over the soil surface and then raking it in to a depth of about 4-6 inches. Be sure to wear gloves and a dust mask when handling the lime as it can be irritating to the skin and respiratory system.

Water the soil: After applying the lime, water your garden thoroughly to help the lime work its way into the soil.

By following these steps, you can use agricultural lime to improve the health and vitality of your garden soil, leading to stronger, healthier plants.
