Is Ericaceous soil required?

Postby Highflychick » 04 Sep 2009 16:22

Hi I wonder if someone could let me know if I need to plant a Sundaville in ericaceous soil? (I know that it won't harm the plant if I do even though it can be planted in normal soil, however just means if I need to go and buy some.

Thanks you so much in advance for your help

Hello Claire,

Your question puzzled me for a while because I was not quite sure what you meant by a Sundaville. I think Sundaville is the commen name for Mandevilla. If I am correct, then you do not need ericaceous compsot for a Mandevilla plant although I would suggest a compost that contains some proper soil. (loam based)
