I have two fields which need limed but due to the location of them beside certain property, I can’t have quarry lime blowing over that area.

I see some people are offering bagged lime produced from egg shells which some say is much better than G-Lime.

Anyone used it or know much about it?

Might try it. Doesn’t appear to be expensive compared to G-Lime which they say only lasts a year but I do wonder if it’s another quick fix products do needs done every year?
