Check the bags when buying Ericaceous compost. You will probably find that it is just a bag of peat and they have hiked up the price by including the word Ericaceous on the front. 

There are ethical issues about using peat, that i hope will be avoided on this thread as it has been discussed on other threads. So please keep them there.

Hi Valerie 2.

You do not say how old the tree is. 

This question was asked, not so long back. I hope this link will help. Dove sets out the advice about half way down the thread. 

Hope it helps.

Most heathers are acid lovers, preferring a soil pH of 4.5-5.5.

I think the leaf mould will be neutral so adding peat moss or other acidic soil amendments (Ericaceous Compost) will be needed. Composted Pine needles and Conifer shreddings are good for this.
