Hi pauleckler,

Just to be clear on these terms:

The best lime source (safest) is ground limestone. It is an acid acceptor--absorbs acidity when present, otherwise lies there as a rock. Its difficult to get in trouble with this lime source. If you use hydrated lime, masonary lime, or quick lime, you must be careful as pH can get high enough to burn your plants.

Is ground limestone the same as pelletized lime? That's the kind of lime that Home Depot sold me. Thanks,
