Big Value Garden Lime

A completely natural product that improves soil structure, encouraging improved plant and grass growth. 

  • Increases soil pH
  • Helps aerate heavy soils
  • Promotes growth through improving nutrient uptake
  • Assists in composting organic material.

Big Value Garden Lime improves soil structure and corrects soil acidity by increasing pH, which assists in making many essential nutrients more available to the plant. When the soil pH is in balance other fertiliser applications are far more effective; good soil structure and pH encourages improved plant and grass growth.

Big Value Garden Lime also contains the essential plant nutrient Calcium, which strengthens stem and fruit cells, making them less susceptible to disease and disorders.

Note: If the soil is low in organic matter, an application of Big Value Compost is recommended to enhance the soil structure. (If Big Value Garden Lime is used in combination with Big Value Compost, halve the application rates.)
