I would not use it. It has a VERY HIGH magnesium content.
Meaning, it is was produced from dolomite type limestone.

Suppose some poor noob used a tablespoon or so of said magnesium-rich garden lime in his peat/verm casing mixture? What problems would be expected?

3-4 tablespoons of calcium carbonate powder was added in addition to the lime, with the total volume of mix totaling about a quart.

Thanks for the help.

does the powdered limestone usually have high magnesium?? can it be used for the caco3 in casing soils?

Here's a more pointed question...

Is the magnesium content in my mix high enough that I should re-case?

Any opinions appreciated.

You're probably wanting hydrated lime (pickling lime) - most supermarkets sell it on the same shelf with the jars and lids :smile:
