SYLVAGROW® Ericaceous compost is a unique blend of fine bark, wood fibre (bi-products of sustainably managed British forests) and coir (from a single, known source). It contains balanced nutrients sufficient for the first 4 – 6 weeks of growth. This professional-quality, 100% peat-free ericaceous compost is ideal for growing rhododendrons, azaleas, heathers, camellias and other lime-hating plants in tubs and containers and for planting out.

How to Use:
Potting on, containers, tubs and troughs

• Firstly ensure that the plant to be potted on has been well-watered. If it is dry, immerse the roots in a bucket of water (preferably rainwater) for half an hour

• Fill the pot, tub or other container with SylvaGrow® Ericaceous

• Make a hole large enough to accommodate the item to be potted and insert it, taking care that the growing medium is at about the same height on the stem as previously

• Gently firm the SylvaGrow® Ericaceous around the plant and water thoroughly

• Ensure that the SylvaGrow® Ericaceous is kept moist but not over-wet, at all times

• After four to six weeks, regularly apply a proprietary ericaceous liquid feed, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Alternatively incorporate slow-release fertiliser granules according to the manufacturer’s instructions, at the time of potting
