Ericaceous Plants Visit the store for full range

Ericaceous plants or ‘acid loving’ and ‘lime hating’ plants must only be grown in lime free, free draining, acidic soil or compost, ideally with a pH of 4.5-6.0, or pH 7 with careful application of Iron Sulphate twice a year. If your soil is above pH 7 you can still grow ericaceous plants – just get hold of some attractive pots or containers instead!

The popular majority in this group - Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Camellias all grow well in full sun but enjoy a little shade and shelter too, which is rarely a problem in most gardens with fence or wall nearby.
