compost results

I bought a fruit cage, put in blueberries, tayberries and loganberries, having forked in quite a lot of ericaceous compost.  planted lettuces in between plants, and sprinkled mixed climbers around border within cage.  What a result, huge lettuces, nasturtium leaves the size of dinner plates (no flowers yet, remains to be seen), and everything so healthy.  I wondered if anyone else has noticed such good results when using ericaceous composts, and whether it is worth pursuing in future!   I have an elderly friend who has also noticed such good results.  The veg. plot the fruit cage is in has never had much compost added.

    Should only use ericaceous for acid loving plants like blueberries, but it won't hurt them.
