limestone pellets?
    #896985 - 09/21/02 08:02 AM (18 years, 10 months ago)

Can Limestone pellets be used instead of limestone flour? Bought big bag and never noticed that it said pellets and not flour. Looks like gravel about the size of the crushed oyster shells. Looked in search and found nothing that says anything bout pellets. Thanks

I use them.  Just stick them in a blender or coffee grinder and make flour out of them.  It is the same just used for different purposes.  I find it is cheaper to by the 40 LB. bag in garden centers  ($4) than the 1LB. can of flour (pickeling lime) in the canning section for ($2).  It is all the same just different lables!

Peace :laugh: ignuF

Thanks, going to try that. I have found the hydrated lime but think the limestone might be safer. First time trying 50/50+. Was using straight Verm up to now.
