solving ph problem in soil

  1. I just wanted some others advice on this: I'm growing some outdoor plants and the ph is a little acidic in the soil i'm going to use - around 4.5-5. I added 5 tablespoons powdered hydrated lime per 20 gals of mix and am waiting to see results as I just did this a few days ago.

    My question is if the soil is still a little acidic would it help to water with a more alkaline ph water like 7.5???

    thanks to all
  2. It helped me to fix mine that were too alkaline.I hope this helps,but somtimes you can listen to everyones opinion and end up WAY off track.....keep it simple as possible.
  3. Thanks man, has anyone used the hydrated lime to sweeten soil?
