Ground Limestone
Ground limestone (approx. 800g) in a handy plastic box that you can keep next to the compost bin. Ground limestone reduces excess acidity in the compost heap. It can also assist in improving the structure of soils by flocculating (adhering in flocks or flakes) the sticky substances in clay, rather than allowing them to form big clumps - this results in improved aeration and drainage in the soil. Lime is also useful in detering club root. In the QR compost heap lime is said to sweeten the heap. Worms also use lime in their digestion process; both for grinding their food as well as liquefying their food with calcium carbonate before it enters the intestine. Note that this product should be used sparingly and only light dusting is required at every 3rd layer in a heap. Too much lime will drive away beneficial worms.
