Empathy AFTER PLANT ERICACEOUS is suitable for all the acid/lime hating ericaceous plants and contains a combination of ericoid and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.
Plants in the ground: Apply 1-2 handfuls (25 – 50g) around the base of the plant, lightly worked into the soil and water well. for larger established plants apply 2 handfuls per square meter under the canopy of the plant.
Container plants and topiary: Apply 2 – 3 handfuls per plant twice yearly. We recommend that once per year 5 – 10cm (2-4 inches) of soil are removed from the top of the pot and replaced with fresh compost. Add 1 – 2 handfuls when replacing the compost to keep your evergreens in prime condition.
Apply in spring at the first signs of growth, after flowering and as an autumn top dress for the best results use in combination with Empathy Seaweed Ericaceous.
Empathy AFTER PLANT ERICACEOUS is NOT a substitute for using rootgrow™ at time of planting. For new plantings, or in poor soil conditions, we recommend using pure rootgrow™ ericoid mycorrhizal fungi applied close to the plant’s roots.
