    Does anyone out there know the shelf life for lime. My supplier said it's fine as long as it hasn't been wet and clumped. I used some that I think is two years old and some that is one year old. I am having second thoughts although I know it's a little late. If it does go bad do you know what the results might be from using it?

    Thanks, Ed

    It doesn't go bad in the sense I think you mean.

    Lime just gets hard and/or lumpy. So if its spreadable go for it.

    Since it's been in the ground for millions of years, I doubt sitting on a shelf for a few years is going to hurt it.:laugh:
