Kings Dolomite Lime 10kg

An excellent organic soil conditioner that unlocks plant nutrients in the soil and improves soil structure.
Dolomite Lime corrects soil acidity, but if applied in excess it tends to stabilise the soil at a neutral pH. Therefore, it is the best lime to use where the lime requirement is not known. It promotes plant growth and accelerates the process of composting.
Dolomite Lime provides the important plant nutrients calcium and magnesium. Magnesium remedies deficient, yellowing leaves.
Use on all vegetable and shrub gardens in Autumn and again in early Spring. It is beneficial to apply when preparing the soil for new gardens.
Deepens the colour in pink hydrangeas.

Keep away from acid soil loving plants such as camellias, azaleas, magnolia, rhododendrons, daphne, blue hydrangeas, erica, and gardenias.

  • Apply 1/2 cup (200g) to 1 cup (400g) of Dolomite Lime per square metre for light, sandy loam through to heavy, clay loam.
  • Apply in Autumn and again in early Spring.
  • Apply before the soil is dug or hoe through later.
  • For heavier applications, it is recommended to make two or more lighter applications.
  • Composting: Spread 1 cup (400g) per square metre over the top layer of compost every four months.
