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.
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.
Any questions? See our FAQs below or feel free to WhatsApp or call us to speak to one of our horticultural experts.
– Lower pH for growing ericaceous plants.

Bevlar DM • 1 month ago
Super friendly team. I ordered a load of topsoil delivered when I was not at home. The driver ensured it was unloaded in the correct place and took their time to move bins and leave enough space for the garage door to open and for the car to park. Highly recommend Corker to anyone looking for a professional service.

Plenty of choice of stones, rocks, aggregate and slate. Nice friendly helpful people. Drove nearly 2 hours to get there, but pleased that I did.
Andrew • 11 months ago
Fantastic service - delivery next day at no charge and the delivery person went that extra mile to get the load close to the work site - closer than I dared hoped for -saving me huge amounts of ‘wheelbarrowing’.

Simon • 11 months ago
The team at Corker were brilliant in helping us understand exactly what we needed and took the time to run through the product selection and provide recommendations where we asked for them.
Luke • 11 months ago
We had been disappointed with the quality of what stone masons were offering for stones on the top of graves. We liked what Corkers had and they got four bags ready in no time, loaded them into the car and refused a tip. Within 45 minutes the two graves were sorted. They look great.

A great family run business with great yards men and drivers, can’t do enough to help and go the extra mile for any client or tradesmen. Really can’t express enough how helpful and friendly these guys are.
Antony Goodwin • 1 year ago
Corkers is a business I have used for many years. They are a very well run family business who always put the customer first, nothing is a problem to them and they have never let me down!
Richard McCombie • 1 year ago
I have been using Corker for years now and I feel that I don’t need to go elsewhere! It’s a one stop shop for all of us landscapers but what’s just as good is the fact we can send our clients there for inspiration for their gardens.
Jake Fairweather • 1 year ago
I purchased 3 bulk bags of topsoil and 2 of compost. I rang them first to discuss delivery issues that there could have been with this kind of delivery. the person on the phone was really helpful, the delivery driver arrived on the appointed day, at the appointed time. he was helpful, very jolly and rather brilliant.

I can't believe I haven't used Corker sooner! They were the only company to deliver what I needed, when I needed it. Their website was simple to use and even has tutorial videos on how to get the most out of the products.

Thank you to Corkers for a great delivery service! We are preparing a greenhouse base alongside various other projects and the Corkers delivery man was kind enough to rearrange all our materials on site when delivering our top soil. Thank you. This company is highly recommended!
