Product Overview

Hi-Yield Horticultural Hydrated Lime counteracts or neutralizes acidic soils and "sweetens" them. Use Hi-Yield Horticultural Hydrated Lime to loosen heavy clay soils and to reduce odor and flies around outhouses and stables. Hi-Yield Horticultural Hydrated Lime also benefits your soil and plants in number of different ways. For example, by reducing the acidity of overly acidic soils certain substances that are toxic to plants are kept from dissolving. Hi-Yield Horticultural Hydrated Lime increases nitrogen fixation in legumes, increases the activity of beneficial soil-based microbes, and increase the availability of certain nutrients such as Molybdenum and Phosphorus to plants. You can also use this product to make whitewash solution.

Use HI-YIELD HORTICULTURAL HYDRATED LIME to “sweeten” and help neutralize overly acid soils around Shrubs, Flowers, Vegetables, Lawns and Potted Plants. Lime increases availability of Phosphorous, Molybde-num, and certain other elements in acid soils.



Many shrubs and flowers grow best in slightly acid to neutral soils. For soils that are too acid, apply 1 pound per 30 square feet. Mix thoroughly into soil. Do not apply Lime on or near plants that prefer very acid soils, such as Azaleas and Camellias.


Apply 1 pound per 30 square feet on slightly acid sandy soil and incorporate in top soil. For clay soils apply 2 pounds per 30 square feet. Apply Lime 2 to 4 months before planting and incorporate thoroughly in soil. When questionable, determine the acidity of soil before application.


If medium acid soil condition exists, apply 5 pounds to 100 square feet. If strongly acid, apply 5 pounds to 50 square feet. Best results are obtained with two applications.


Add 1 tablespoon per each 1 gallon of water used and stir. Once a year apply this solution to plants that require a neutral or alkaline soil.
