Why so much lime in SWCs? Will it work for non-swcs?
Adding 1 cup of lime, and 1 cup of fertilizer to a 5 gal bucket SWC worked really well. Why? It seems like a lot of lime and fertilizer. Should I be adding more lime and/or fertilizer to my regular 511 containers? Last year the tomatoes that I grew in the one SWC that I had, grew better than any container. Was it the cup of lime or the cup of fertilizer? My container tomatoes grew well, but the SWC tomato was much darker green, grew like a weed, and bore a lot of fruit. How can I improve my regular container mix? Thanks in advance.
