Lower Soil pH

8 years ago

I just checked my Soil pH on my organic raised bed garden and found it to be 8! The other NKP levels were reasonable.No wonder my plants didn't do so well this year, probably a lack of Iron & Zinc? Unfortunately, I had been adding Lime for the tomatoes, which only made things worse. The question is, I would like to do my fall planting ASAP. Is there a way to move the soil pH lower, at least 1/2 a point before I replant? The rest of the change can be made over the winter, I would assume.
