Hi i have purchased a standard Azalea, i have the wrong type of soil, so i buried a water feature base and intend to fill it with the right soil, my question is does it have to be just ericaceous soil or could it be a mixture of soils any suggestions woud be grateful. I did punch drainage holes in the base.
Regards James

    It should be acidic soil, which is ericaceous soil.  Or you can use any old soil and then add sulphur until you get the alkalinity down.   Which can be checked with a pH test kit. But frankly if it’s only one azalea I’d just buy a sack of ericaceous soil!
