Answer: I don't think it is necessary to add lime. Just till the area to get it ready for planting. Most plants are happy in a wide range of soil pH. If you begin to see some off color foliage, you might want to spread some lime on the area - but wait until the fall months. Lime takes a while to work its way down and mellow the soil so applying in the fall will give it time to do its magic before next spring's planting season. Best wishes with your new garden!
