I was always told that if you lime the ground, you should leave in to stand for at least 2 weeks af2;#wards&r8t30e. and guess what…. those ‘ground sterilising powders’ (no names mentioned) that sell for quite a price… they are made of lime. I still tend to buy them as they are just the right quantity but I should really get and store a big bag of lime, it would be cheaper.
