Description

Elixir Gardens® Bumper Crop | Ericaceous Feed Fertiliser – NPK 12-10-11 + 4

Ericaceous plants are plants that don’t like growing in soils that contain lime. They are also known as acid lovers or lime haters. This means they won’t grow well in soils that have a high pH – such soils are referred to as alkaline. Ericaceous plants include Rhododendron, Camellia, Azalea, Pieris, summer-flowering heathers (calluna) and even Japanese maples (Acer) among others.

Because most ericaceous plants – especially rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias and heathers – are shallow rooted, they are prone to drying out during prolonged dry periods. So it is very important to keep the soil or compost moist. This is particularly important during the flower bud setting period in summer; if the soil or compost is allowed to dry out at this time bud set can fail. So water plants weekly during dry periods and mulch the soil well to preserve moisture.
