What type of lime have I bought?
    #1668711 - 06/28/03 05:32 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I'm about to do my first set of casings, and I've bought some "Garden Lime" from my local garden centre.  Reading through the casing FAQ's, I'm not entirely sure what I've bought :confused:  If anyone could help me identify it, I'd really appreciate it.

OK, here's the facts from the box:

"Garden Lime", 3kg box cost about ?2 ($3-4), very fine grainy/sandy particles, tested the pH with a soil pH tester, shows about 8-9.  Side of the box says it is "screened limestone".

I think this is the "limestone" as referred to here.  Could anyone confirm this before I make my casing too alkaline?

Thanks.

Limestone flour, yes.
That?s the right thing.
