Re: Gypsum - Soil Conditioner

In a message dated 1/5/00 08:11:56 Eastern Standard Time, janh@infocom.com 

<< What do you all think about using Gypsum for a soil conditioner for growing
 hosta - outside? >>
Good morning, Jan:

The following reply is made without knowledge of your soil: Gypsum is an 
expensive soil conditioner.  It is a good one to use where soils have 
clay-like conditions.  It behaves similar to coarse or sharp builder's sand 
when added with organic matter to clay soils will help with water 
percolation.  The gypsum is also a source of slow release calcium.

Hope this helps...Hostally,

Rich Horowitz
