do you mean alkaline or acidic MG as 5.5-6.5 is slightly acidic.
I am hoping it is alkaline as I have just got some for my garden which is definitely alkaline.

Oops sorry no neutral to mildly acidic... brain dead up here (must be the snow again!)

With plenty of organic compost added too. Leaf mould if you can get it.
