Description
A garden essential for acid-loving plants! Camellias, Blueberries, and Rhododendrons, to name but a few, will all thank you for this compost when you pot them up. Ericaceous compost has a low, acid pH which allows acid-loving plants to absorb iron and other nutrients properly. In ordinary compost with a higher pH, these vital nutrients become 'locked up' in the soil creating weak, spindly growth and yellowing foliage in ericaceous plants. This balanced compost provides the perfect low pH conditions for excellent root development and strong, healthy growth of all acid-loving plants including:

Ferns
Blechnum

Fruits
Blueberry
Cranberry
Lemon
Lime
Lingonberry
Orange
Raspberry

Perennials
Cornus canadensis
Japanese Iris (Iris ensata)
Lily of The Valley (Convallaria majalis)

Shrubs
Amelanchier lamarkii
Azalea
Camelia
Enkinathus
Fothergilla
Gardenia
Gaultheria
Hamamelis
Heather (Erica / Calluna)
Hydrangea (to create blue blooms)
Itea
Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum)
Leucothoe
Pieris
Physocarpus
Rhododendron
Skimmia
Stachyurus

Trees
Abies
Arbutus
Eucryphia
Magnolia
Nyssa
Picea


1 x 25 litre pack of ericaceous compost + 100g pack of incredibloom (KB4772)
1 x 45 Litre Bag (KC3786)

More Info
If you use your ericaceous compost in borders or beds, it will gradually lose acidity over time as it mixes with the existing soil. In order to retain and increase acidity you will need to regularly add acidifying materials to the soil. Add ericaceous feed or fertiliser to the soil to maintain acidity. Also worth noting is that when watering your ericaceous plants you should avoid using tap water (where possible) as treated tap water is generally alkaline. Ideally water with more acidic rain water.
