Questions & Answers

Q
Does Bonide Hydrated Lime work the same as dolomite?

I just purchased a GrowBox for tomatoes, and they suggested adding two cups of dolomite or powered lime to the soil prior to planting. But they cautioned not to use garden lime, because that is almost all calcium. I'm confused!! Help!

A
The Hydrated Lime in question only has a Total Calcium (Ca) of - 34.20%. You will want to contact either your master gardner or the manufacturer of the product to see if this is the exact formulation you need. We are not familiar with the variation or differences between Dolomite and hydrated lime, and your soil ph can call for different amounts as well. You can reach Bonide at 1-800-536-8231 or find your local master gardner here.
