Lime with partially acidic plants?
I'm using a mixture of pine bark, compost, and peat moss (about equal proportions, slightly more pine bark) in my container/raised bed. I can't get all the correct ingredients for either of Al's mixes so I settled with this. I might add Perlite also if its not light enough. I'm growing tomatoes, carrots, a mix of lettuces, and garlic in the bed. From what I've read these vegetables like more acidic soil I believe? Should I still add lime? I was going to use the Espoma lime if needed. It's an organic garden.
I'm also hoping to use this same mix with strawberries, mint, and miniature roses. They're in separate containers though.
