I dont know what you mean (bulk bags) hydrated lime,1 bag is 20kg as standard.Most builders merchants stock it,try the yellow pages

you can use hydrated lime with sand mixed 4:1 have used it many times to point stonework,or you can use limemix bags just add sand but has cement with it specially designed for that application,but I could not get enough for the job I needed
