Dolomite is a product you’ll find in the soil improving section of the nursery or garden centre. It’s designed to help correct soil pH and bring it into the neutral range (which is a pH of 6-7) – this is the range that veggies, fruit trees and many plants in the garden love. If you don’t know your soil pH you can grab a simple soil testing kit for a few dollars and do the test on your own soil. Dolomite also adds calcium and magnesium to the soil – these are essential nutrients for healthy plant growth.
Our favourite dolomite is eco-flo dolomite …..why?
Snapshot: This is the easy way to apply dolomite to your garden – it’s a liquid so no digging required!
Where to use it: Most flowering plants, fruit trees and veggies will love you for an application of this at the beginning of the growing season. Avoid using around lovers of acidic soil like strawberries, blueberries, camellias & azaleas.
How much to use? Follow the dilutions on the bottle for your particular soil and situation. Mix into a watering car or use the clip-on to your hose pack for easy peasy application.
