The Q&A Archives: Lime Requirements

Question: My Nov. 1999 soil test indicated that I need 1 lb. per 100 sq. ft. of calcitic limestone. My question is-when is the best time to apply this limestone?

Answer: Fall is a good time to apply it so it has time to work into the soil and begin to take some effect before the next planting season.
