Available in: 3kg, 8kg & 25kg

Tui Lime is a staple ingredient for healthy, thriving gardens, and is a natural source of calcium for strong, healthy, plant growth. Lime improves soil structure, encouraging decomposition of organic matter and earthworm activity. Lime naturally adjusts soil pH levels, boosting plant growth and improving nutrient absorption by plants. Tui Lime can also be used on lawns to encourage lush green growth, and in compost bins to speed up the decomposition process.

Use in your garden beds to reap the rewards of healthy soil and plants.
