soil ph really low


My soil ph is 5.5 when I measure it with my ph meter. The problem is we’re into spring and I need to get it back up over 6.5 as soon as possible since the temperatures are getting quite warm. I know lime pellets take a month or so to work their way into the ground. Any ideas on what I can use to get it back up faster?

As our on line article about Soil PH explains, it does take some time to get the local PH to shift any measureable degree. And lime pellets do take quite a while since they first must be washed in. For faster results, apply some Liquid Lime where needed. Since it’s applied with water, the impact of the treatment is immediate. Measure the PH weekly following your application and apply some more 3-4 weeks if needed.
