How To Improve Your Soil By Adding Lime

How To Improve Your Soil By Adding Lime

How To Improve Your Soil By Adding Lime – Rain steadily washes lime out of your soil at an average rate of ½ oz per sq. yd. Slowly the land becomes more sour, and neither humus-makers nor the majority of fertilizers are of any help in correcting this condition. The answer is to apply lime – the oldest and still the best soil conditioner.


– Lime neutralizes sourness. Very few garden plants grow well under acid (sour) conditions.

Garden Jobs In December – The holidays are a busy time of the year for all gardeners, but for those who love to garden, there is still plenty to do in December.

Harvest the fall vegetable crop. It’s time to start harvesting vegetables from plants sowed in September and October. You can even add more vegetable plants before it gets too cold. They include artichokes, asparagus, beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, peas, potatoes and radishes. Note: expect them to grow slower than those vegetables planted in spring.

Planting On Specific Locations

Planting On Specific Locations – Most places in the garden are improved by a plant, or group of plants, grown in attractive container. Often, the restricting factor is how many plants you can manage to water without it becoming too much of a chore. Give priority to sites that are constantly in view, or near the house. If the side walls of the building can be drilled safely, secure attractive wall baskets, hayracks, and hanging baskets to them, ideally near doorways, or above paths where they can be enjoyed, as well as easily watered and looked after.
