Re: Re: Heathers in Clay soils???

Thanks Dave,
Appreciated. Do you think that if I dug a larg hole and filled it with Ericaceous compos then plant Heathers that would work?

Re: Heathers in Clay soils???

Hi Ange,

Yes, that would work. Over time (5 years or so?) the effect of the ericaceous would lessen. So the addition of a light mulch of ericaceous compost each year should maintain the acidity of the soil. It's also a good idea to feed them with lime hating plant food occasionally. Typically this is branded as azalea and rhodedendron feed.

Good luck.

Dave
