Depending on the variety, Erica may prefer a more acidic or alkaline soil pH. To increase the soil pH (making it more alkaline) apply Yates Hydrangea Pinking Liquid Lime & Dolomite. To reduce the soil pH (making it more acidic) apply Yates Soil Acidifier Liquid Sulfur. Check the label to see which soil pH best suits the Erica variety chosen.
They do not need pruning, though to achieve best flowering and growth habit, they can be pruned annually after flowering. They prefer light pruning to encourage new growth and flowering.
For prolonged flowering best to prune them hard (for some heaths it will differ) early spring.
Erica hate wet feet, avoid planting in poorly draining soil as this can lead to root rot and possibly plant death.
