I put down lime last fall on the lawn, and read where it shouldn’t be applied but every few years – only to read elsewhere you can’t apply enough in Southern Ohio. What’s your opinion?
Never apply lime unless you have a soil test, and the results say “apply lime”. That’s my opinion and proven answer. A little lime may be used for a source of calcium around tomatoes and peppers (gypsum is even better and won’t change the pH), but otherwise, don’t do it unless the soil tests tell you to. Southern lawns / soils (warm season grasses) are different as their soils need lime, but generally not around here.
