Bumper Crop Garden Lime | Fix Soil pH | 1kg – 25kg | High Quality

£5.99£16.99

  • Increase Soil pH – If your soil is too acidic for what you require, then we recommend Bumper Crop Garden Lime. Our product is a unique, fast acting soil conditioner, specially formulated to help manage soil pH, improving soil fertility whilst optimising crop and grass performance.
  • Signs You May Have Acidic Soil – Certain weeds growing in your garden may be evidence of your soil being/becoming too acidic. These include Sorrel, Creeping Buttercup, Nettle, Dock and Mare’s Tail. By liming you can reduce weed issues, and improve growth at the same time.
  • Unlock Your Soils Potential – Bumper Crop Garden Lime helps to neutralise acid soils, enabling beneficial bacteria to flourish and releasing essential nutrients from your soil to your crops. This can cause “locked up” nutrients in soils that are too acidic, and therefore can not be used by crops that could benefit from them when planted in said soil.
  • Testing Your Soil – It is always recommended to test your soil before Liming. You can purchase a soil tester to check before applying. Always test different soil spots in the area and apply where needed.

Application

Can be added all year round, but it is recommended to add in the autumn/winter for annuals such as vegetables before frost so that it can take affect over winter months. It is also recommended to add lime before planting as it will have more effect compared to when added to the surface of established plants.

For highly acidic soil apply every year, other soil every 2-3 years.
