How to take care of Andromeda polifolia Compacta
Plant Andromeda polifolia Compacta in full sun to light shade wind-protected site in moisture retentive well-drained, organically rich soil, amended with peat. It needs to be mulched as drying out quickly ends up in losing leaves along the stems. Feed Andromeda polifolia Compacta with a 4-3-4 granular fertilizer for acid-loving plants.
Prune Andromeda polifolia Compacta right after it blooms and before it sets fruit. Remove dead, diseased, damaged branches. Cutting back healthy ones will encourage dense foliage production. Ensure the pruning is complete before the Andromeda polifolia Compactasets its buds for the following spring's bloom.
Generally pest-free but soggy soil exposes the plant to root rot fungus.
