- Tips & Advice
Use straight from the bag for plants at all growth stages. Once in use, always keep the Erin Excel Ericaceous Compost moist but, do not allow plants to stand in water.
Take cuttings correctly from your mother plant. Fill the pots or containers with the compost and level off. Using a pencil or dibber, make the holes in the compost and insert cuttings. Firm gently around the plant and water thoroughly. Cover each pot or container with a clear polythene bag to avoid loss of moisture. When roots appear, remove the cover and transplant as necessary.
Partly fill the pot with Erin Excel Ericaceous Compost. Make sure you have chosen the correct size pot to comfortably hold the plant roots. Place the plant in the centre. Fill the surrounding area with more compost, firming with your fingertips tightly around the root-ball. Water-in well but do not saturate.
Tubs, Pots & Containers
Half fill the container with the compost, place the plants evenly inside while filling around the roots with more compost. Gently firm the compost, water-in well but do not saturate.
Water the plant to be planted out and allow to drain. Make the planting hole approximately twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot and place the plant in the hole. Back fill with a half and half mixture of the ericaceous compost and soil. Water thoroughly.
Acid Loving Plant Beds
Use this ericaceous compost in raised or sunken beds where the garden soil is too alkaline or chalky for good growth of acid loving plants. A well perforated liner should be place in the bottom of the bed which can then be filled with the compost. Plant directly into the compost and do not allow the bed to dry out.
