The Q&A Archives: using lime

Question: Hello,

What is the best time of year to apply lime into the garden?

Thank you,

Mary Beth

Answer: Since it takes several months for lime to do its work, fall is an excellent time to apply the product. It will mellow the soil's pH by the time spring arrives.

Best wishes with your garden!
