There are a lot of hydrated garden lime products.
Seems to work faster and if you already have too much magnesium in the soil it is an option.
You just have to be careful with it and use it in the winter.

Needless to say I dont need to raise my pH.

But of course I live in Texas and the dam things are huge.

"I'm not familiar with anyone who uses hydrated lime in gardening or farming."

In the '70's I worked in a greenhouse where hydrated lime was added to the sawdust/chip raised beds that were used for growing tomatoes (Vendor then Fantastic) hydroponically.
