Could you advise, please, whether a shallow layer of ericaceous compost accidentally put in the bottom of a pot is likely to affect a cotoneaster Juliette?



Would have been best to mix it in with the other compost, but I don't think it'll have a dramatic effect on the plant - by the time the roots reach that bottom layer, most of the acidity will have leached out.

I'm sure it will have no adverse effects

Cotoneaster isn't a fussy animal anyway.

Many thanks to those of you whose replies to the query about my cotoneaster reassured me that it probably hasn't been harmed. (Husbands, eh!!!!)
