Levington® Ericaceous Compost is specially formulated for growing acid-loving or lime-hating plants in pots and containers. Contains a high iron formula for greener, healthier leaves.
Levington® Ericaceous Compost is ideal for potting, taking cuttings, outdoor planting, tubs, troughs, window boxes and acidic beds.
After 4-6 weeks, we recommend regular feeding. When the plant is established, supplementary feeding during spring and summer is recommended using Miracle-Gro Azalea, Cammellia and Rhododendron Continuous Release Plant Food. This produces extra iron and reduces leaves yellowing.
Ericaceous plants are often referred to as lime-hating or acid-loving plants. The most commonly grown ericaceous plants are: Azalea, Camellia and Rhododendrons. These plants thrive in a low lime environment (pH 5 to 5.5). If they are grown in soil where the pH is too high, they produce poor growth and the leaves tend to become yellowish in colour.
Each year, Scotts Miracle-Gro resuses thousands of tonnes of material from gardens and forests in many of our compost mixes, to help you grow plants that enhance your environment and make the World more beautiful.
