An Appropriate Lime Mortar Mix Recipe for Ontario Canada Climate?

I plan to repoint my stone house,  and need a fail safe historically appropriate lime mortar recipe.  Any advice will be most appreciated,  thanks.

Good info Richard. I am saving your formula for my own use in the future. I have a lot of minor issues here and there where mortar is missing. So, I will get the ingredients, but make it in a smaller batch.

Anyone have a good mix for lime mortar without portland cement? I would like to make my own for my foundation work (Bec that stuff from Palmer lime works is kind of expensive with the shipping). I would save the other stuff for the brick repointing I have been doing.
