Ericaceous Topsoil

This rich, black ericaceous soil has a high organic content. Combined with its low pH, it is ideal for acid-loving / lime-hating plants such as camellias, magnolias, azaleas, heathers, rhododendrons and Japanese acers. The organic content will aid microbial activity, thus helping with root and plant growth.


When growing your own vegetables such as radishes, sweet potatoes, peppers, potatoes and rhubarb, acidic soils are preferable, so ericaceous topsoil will help produce a bumper crop.
