A unique blend of fine bark (a by-product of sustainably managed British forests) and coir (from known, ethically-approved sources). SylvaGrow Ericaceous contains balanced nutrients sufficient for the first 4 - 6 weeks of growth. This professional-quality, 100% peat-free ericaceous compost is ideal for growing blueberries, rhododendrons, azaleas, heathers, camellias and other lime-hating plants in tubs and containers and for planting out.

Potting on, containers, tubs and troughs • Firstly ensure that the plant to be potted on has been well-watered. If it is dry, immerse the roots in a bucket of water (preferably rainwater) for half an hour • Fill the pot, tub or other container with SylvaGrow Ericaceous • Make a hole large enough to accommodate the item to be potted and insert it, taking care that the growing medium is at about the same height on the stem as previously • Gently firm the SylvaGrow Ericaceous around the plant and water thoroughly • Ensure that the SylvaGrow Ericaceous is kept moist but not over-wet, at all times • After four to six weeks, regularly apply a proprietary ericaceous liquid feed, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Alternatively incorporate slow-release fertilizer granules according to the manufacturer’s instructions, at the time of potting • For a perfect finishing touch mulch the surface with SylvaBark Pine Bark Flakes or SylvaBark Pine Mini Mulch

Cuttings • Ensure the mother plant is well-watered before taking cuttings • Fill a deep seed tray or pot with SylvaGrow Ericaceous and make a suitable hole with a dibber or pencil • Prepare the stem cuttings according to type, ensuring that they are not allowed to dry out between cutting and inserting. Dip in hormone rooting powder/liquid if using • Insert the cutting and gently firm the medium around it • Stem cuttings need to be in a moist environment out of direct sunlight until they have rooted so either place in a cold frame, a covered propagator or cover with polythene, using supports to prevent the polythene from touching the cuttings. • Once the cuttings are well-rooted they can be potted on according to the instructions above

Raised Beds SylvaGrow Ericaceous can be used as part of a raised bed medium for lime-hating plants. • Simply mix 1 part SylvaGrow Ericaceous thoroughly with 3 to 4 parts acidic garden soil to gain a valuable addition of organic matter and nutrients. • Remember to supplementary feed as instructed above in ‘Potting On’. If the soil used is not acidic, (which is not recommended for best results) use up to 1 part SylvaGrow Ericaceous to 1 part soil and be particularly vigilant regarding supplementary feeding with an appropriate fertilizer for lime-hating plants. • Keep the soil moist at all times particularly during the first year as the plants are becoming established

Planting Out SylvaGrow Ericaceous can be used as a planting medium for lime-hating plants in order to add valuable organic matter and nutrients to acidic soils. • Simply blend at 1 part to 4 parts of the back-fill soil. • Always ensure that the plant is watered to capacity before planting out and if necessary, immerse the roots in a bucket of water (preferably rainwater) for half an hour prior to planting. • Ensure that the planting pit is well-integrated with the wider soil with no smeared sides or other impediments to root exploration beyond the planting hole. • If the soil is not acidic, (which is not recommended for best results) use up to 1 part SylvaGrow Ericaceous to 2 parts soil and be particularly vigilant regarding supplementary feeding with an appropriate fertilizer for lime-hating plants. • Keep the soil moist at all times particularly during the first year as the plants are becoming established
