As the the subject asks, where can one get oyster shell and hydrated lime? My Canadian friend has decided to have a go at the 50/50+ method but hasn't seen these items around.

Try going to a large commercial nursery . Many gardeners use the stuff

any feed store for the crushed oyster shells. Apparently chickens and such animals eat it for a source of calcium. You can buy huge 50 pound bags of it if so desired. As for the hydrated lime go to any nursery and ask for it. Its used to "sweeten the soil" so to speak and pretty much everyone who sells plants sell it.

Yeah, at the nursery they said to hit a feed store... the only problem is that they don't exist in these parts. As for the hydrated lime... they had no idea what I was talking about (and this was at a major nursery). What's even worse is that I bought a bag of dolomic lime that I can't use and can't take back.  :smirk: Live and learn...

hehe well isnt that convient?? :wink:  I work at a wall paper company and they have huge 50 lb. bags of hydrated lime there for some reason??  Im not sure exactly what they use them for, but I help myself when needed :wink:

They also have huge bags of a melting agent called "Solar Salt Crystals"but i havent gotten to take a close look at them yet to see if they are of any use as a dessicant.
