Miracle-Gro® Azalea, Camellia & Rhododendron Soluble Plant Food
Miracle-Gro Azalea, Camellia & Rhododendron Soluble Plant Food is specially formulated, with a unique mix of 11 nutrients, to give just what acid-loving or lime-hating plants need for healthy growth and lots of flowers. Used regularly from flowering to late summer, this special plant food will encourage strong, healthy leaves and big flower buds to give a beautiful display of flowers the following spring.
It is greatly beneficial to all other ericaceous plants, such as Pieris, Acers, Heathers, Skimmias, Blueberries and Raspberries. Contains sequestered iron, which is easy for ericaceous plants to take up, even in alkaline soil and is essential to help prevent leaf yellowing.
Ericaceous plants are often referred to as lime-hating or acid-loving plants. The most commonly grown ericaceous plants are azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons. These plants thrive in a low lime environment (pH 4.5 to 5.5). If they are grown in soil where the pH is too high (alkaline), they produce poor growth, few flowers and the leaves tend to become yellowish in colour.
