There is no need to foliar spray. If you can get some of the finer powder in the package, it will disperse in ground rather quickly. It will not be available to the plant through the leaves.

If you want to spray something for a little faster effect, then I would recommend spraying with epsom salts in water. This will be more available to the leaf in foliar spray form.

As for the Dolomitic lime- This is a staple in my garden. When I compost my used soil and other materials, it ALWAYS gets added. It can help to give your plants a sprinkling through out the season to keep the soil conditions and prevent deficiencies. It is just not a fast spot treatment.
