here's my situation
i have purchased about 4 or 5 cubic yards of great topsoil from my local nursery...
i have filled all my containers and put about a foot on my in-ground bed...
i have a tomato related problem
i am ready to plant...the nursery told me the topsoil was essentially neutral ph-wise...
they also told me they did not put any lime in the topsoil
so, here is my question....i am concerned about blossom end-rot and i want to add some calcium to my soil. the only way i know to do this is to add lime....specifically garden lime from the store.
how much should i add? i don't want to lower my ph, but i feel i must add some calcium to the soil.
is there a better method for adding calcium?
any thoughts would be appreciated
