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.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
SHRUBS AND FLOWERS
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.
POTTED PLANTS AND WINDOW BOXES
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.
