It does need an acid soil but even if your soil is limey you can user Ericaceous compost, just make sure you top it up and use an ericaceous feed too.

This is a standard tree which means it has a 1.8metre stem and then the head of foliage, dependant on the age/girth of the tree will depend on its head size – check each option.
