What kind of soil do a "Skimmia Japonica Rubella" prefer?



Acidic soil conditions are best, otherwise the leaves look sickly yellowish.

Mine is generally happy in a soil only just the acid side of neutral but about once a year it starts to look slightly paler so i give it some ferrous sulphate which works just as well as the more expensive ericaceous feeds.
