Availability & fower power of lipstick

This question was asked by
David Roberts

I want to create a front of border edging of Heucheras with a long lasting flower potential. I was thinking of Lipstick.
The area does have some full sun during the day but otherwise semi shade. What would you advise? I am looking for a quantity of about 12 plants. I intend to come to your open day at the end of the month. Will you have these in stock?
Regards
David.

Hi David
Lipstick is lovely and flowers well we have these available at the moment.
Another variety for flower power would be ‘Paris’ which we have available too see attached link
They have just come back into stock but they will go quickly!
If you want to collect at the open day just to be sure, which ever variety you choose I would order online, then at the checkout choose delivery feom nursery for click and collect at open day
This way you won’t be disappointed
Hope this helps
Kind regards Vicky

Please could you tell me if you are likely to have Heucherella ‘Gunsmoke’ in stock any time in autumn 2017?

Many thanks and best wishes,

Sarah

Hi Sarah
I am afraid we’ve sold out for this year 2017
The closest we have have is cracked ice see below
We only have 5 of those at this present time too
Quite a lot of varieties will come back into stock this month but not the one you want
Sorry
Kind regards

Choice of plants for sunny borders

This question was asked by
Jean G

I have bought heucheras to grow in pots from you , which I am delighted with! Now I have decided I would like something from you to go at the front of 2 borders, to save putting in begonias every year. I have 2 borders about 7 foot wide with an arch in middle. Borders are south facing, and both have assorted green bushes and a few taller flowers, behind where I want these smaller plants Would have liked both borders matching, but drainage on one has poor drainage {clay soil} if we have a lot of rain. I love your new fleur plant {to go in better drained one} and wonder if you could suggest anything else similar to plant alternately with this  Also if you could suggest any of you perenials or anything else to go in poor drainage side, I would be so grateful! See you soon as I have another order being processed!

Hi Jean
Pleased your enjoying your plants from us
On the wet side the heucheras will struggle
There isn’t any way around that unless you can raise the border or improve the soil etc
So only plants that we will be doing shortly is candelabra primrose we will have 3 varieties red, pink and orange this year (coming to website next few weeks plants grown but not had time to put on yet )
Plants to mix with heuchera fleur would be black taffeta, bilberry Cajun fire and forever purple (last two ready soon )
Hope this helps
Kind regards Vicky

Plants for beneath a great western cedar

Could you advise if tiarellas would grow in dry soil under the above. It has a very wide trunk so different sides have different aspects. Thank you,

Hi Sarah
Tiarellas will grow in the shady areas
If its very dry all the time they will need some water
Hope this helps
