should i dig garden lime into my veg patch over winter

United Kingdom Gb

i have a patch where i grow various veg like peas ,carrots, beans and so on do i need to dig garden lime into the soil



No, leave the lime until 2 or 3 weeks before sowing.
It will only leach away in the next rainfall.

Lime is usually used for Brassicas (cabbage family). Dig in compost instead.
