Dies a Skimmia in a pot need ericaceous compost.



No, not necessarily, although if that's what you've got, it won't do any harm. Multi purpose potting compost is usually neutral, and Skimmias do okay in that - they like neutral to acid soil.

Thank you. I've got both composts. Do you think it would be good to have a mixture of the two ?

I've got an ordinary Skimmia and a Magic Marlot.

Yes, good idea, no reason why not.
