Ericaceous topsoil from Corker is formulated for use with acid-loving plants such as Azaleas, Rhododendrons, Camellias and Alpines.
Our ericaceous soil bulk bags contain a mix of single source topsoil, acidic black sand, peat and a slow release fertiliser, blended to create a material with a pH of between 3.5 and 5.5. It has passed stringent quality control for texture, acidity and contamination levels and fully adheres to BS 3883:2015 requirements.
Used in a 2014 BALI (British Association of Landscape Industries) award-winning domestic garden in the City of London, our ericaceous topsoil is of the highest standard.
Don’t Neutralise Your Hard Work!
It is worth mentioning that tap water is often neutral (pH of 7) or alkaline and can actually neutralise acidic soil.
We recommend using collected rainwater for watering your ericaceous plants to avoid the telltale yellowing leaves of lime-induced chlorosis, which stunts growth and usually results in an untimely death. Alternatively, you can test your tap water’s pH and stir in some vinegar if pH is at 6.5 or higher.
