    I suppose it depends on what you mean when you say guidance... are you looking at it's uses, how to use or why to use?

    What sort of ratio do you use the dolomite MC? I think I was to scared and didn't add enough when mixing this time. I'm putting my next mix together soon ready for October. Have you ever used gypsum?

    I use mine at a couple of tablespoon per 5L of soil. I suppose it depends on the problems the soil gives you. My couple of tablespoons sorts out my mag issues in 10L pots when growing autos in soil

    Gypsum? You say that to me & I just think plasterboard LOL

    ****Edit****

    I lie... I've just found my guide on mixing.... it's half that amount

    So 4 tablespoons in 10 litres and that's me sorted for a few grows then and no need for cal mag or epsom salts ? Can it be stored once mixed ?

    Edit 2 tablespoons in 10 litres then lol

    Yes, store it. It takes a few weeks for the Dolomite lime to start to break down into (yup, you guessed!) Calcium & Magnesium

    How long can it be stored for M_C, 10 litres soil will do me 2 maybe 3 grows. Will it store for that long ?
