These two words are often used together when it comes to 'lime and garden use'.

Limestone powder or Lime is used to increase the ph in soil.
Limestone is basically a form of calcium which plants need to produce good fruit.
Be sure to have a soil test done before applying lime or limestone to the garden.
Your Local County Extension Office can help you with a soil test.
