    I bet ive done 10000 soil tests. It takes longer than 7 months. As long as you do everything around the application correct you can apply it anytime.

    Ideal PH level in soil is 6-6.5. Thats ideal for just about any crop/plant.It could take up to 2 years for the PH level to get right after applying lime/nutrients. Fall is the best time to lime. If your soil test shows that your soil is high in magnesium, you will want to use Calcite. Changing the soil PH is a slow process.

    I laid the lime to mine last month. My stuff seems to be growing OK, I think I'll wait about a year and test it again. Will probably add more fertilizer next spring. I'm a babe in the woods when it comes to plots, so I'm bumbling along and figuring it out as I go.
