You should get a cheap PH tester to make sure. Lime is just a source of magnesium & calcium. But, you need to be sure that your soil is deficient in both of these nutrients. Too much magnesium can stop plants from absorbing enough calcium.

I'm confused I thought lime was what you added when you wanted more acid in the soil. lol leave it to me to get it backwards.

TK, that's what I thought too. I was reading about Dianthus' (mine are still only itty bitty plantlets) when I saw that they don't like acid soil. When I checked on how to remedy acidity-- I saw that you add lime. I would've thought that lime WAS acid--but I guess I got it mixed up with the fruit...... perpl

....as to RugbyHukr's warning about soil testing, kit
