How much dolomitic lime estimation
Hi guys, im interested in an estimation of the amount of lime needed to add to my mix. For other batches I have added 3-4 handfuls. am worried its too much.
I am using approx. 60L pine bark fines, 50L coconut husk chips, 30L organic compost, maybe 10L of Peat and about 20L of perlite per batch. No particular reason for these numbers, I just like the look and consistency of the resulting mixture.
I tried straight 5-1-1 last season with only marginal success, attributed perhaps to pine bark fines being too small.
Tomorrow I intend to fill two half wine barrels with the above mixture (approximately) for semi dwarf cherries, and donÃ¢ÂÂt wanna mess up by adding too much or too little lime.
