lime and brassicas


By Alley

i'm just about to plant out my cauliflowers and cabbages, raised from seed, is it ok to use a small amount of lime in the bottom of the planting hole ? i'm sure i've read it somewhere, as it helps prevent clubroot?

On plant Brassica



i am sure you should lime months before you plant out , better check on the instructions , i limed my beds 3 months ago, and apparently that was a bit late, but good luck. bye the way , last year i did not lime and my crop of cabbages and sprouts was brill, so if you are too late , don't panic , just go without the lime.

I grew brassicas for first time last year - didn't lime - they did brill also!
