This is some advice Anno gave me about a year ago regarding limestone:

"....Limestone has a pH around 7, so it doesn?t really matter if you use 10 or 20% by volume.
I usually use about 10%( I don?t measure it exactly"

Thats all I have, Hope that helps a little bit :smile:

I was going to make a post asking about peat moss casings but since this one is already around I'll ask here, Where can I buy hydrated lime and/or limestone. Where can I buy something that will tell me the ph of my soil.

Whoever's used this recipe ( http://www.thehawkseye.com/50-50casing.html ) could you please tell me how much lime and what kinda lime you used your mixture and your results. I heard ground lime is the best, but where do i get that? wal-mart? are there some online stores? thanks in advance for your replies  :grin:
