I have just purchased a bonsai erica arborea collected from sicilly, it is about
150 - 200 years old. Any recomendations regarding soil composition and
prefered feeding regimes would be very welcome

On plant Erica arborea



This is quite a specialist area, so Google bonsai and browse the results. Erica prefers an acidic soil and would also prefer to be watered with rainwater. Use an ericaceous plant food too. It sounds like a wonderful thing. Post photos!
