Heuchera care

This question was asked by
Elaine W

Please could you tell me how I can keep my Heucheras in tip top condition and what soil I should plant them in and the type of feed I should give them please. I just love them!
Thank you

Elaine Williams

Hi Elaine
Pleased you love them.
So ….
Any reasonable well drained soil
Don’t over feed ..we sell loos poo Heuchera feed and slow release which are perfect.
Pale leaves need more shade
Dont like being water logged
Dont cut back in the autumn wait for spring to tidy them up
Use nematodes in August and September to help to keep the vine weevils away
Hope that helps
Kind Regards Vicky

Gift Order how do I do it?

This question was asked by
Doreen C

I would like to send one of your heucheras – Sweet Caroline, she’s a Neil Diamond fan as well as a gardener – as a birthday gift to a friend. How can I do this?
Thanks for your help

Hi Doreen
What a lovely idea
Just order as normal.
Then as you get to the checkout you will be asked for your address and shipping address (your friends address) they can be different
If you want a card we do sell them too they are in the everything for sale catalogue too
If you want to add a message just add to special notes at the checkout
Hope this helps
Any problems just ask
Kind Regards Vicky

Heuchera ‘Chantilly’ villosa

This question was asked by
Nick W

Bought from yourselves in 2019 as a young plant, since then grown to be a real specimen, great but know to large, when is the best time to move and do i need to trim the leaves back to reduce stress.


Hi Nick
Thats great to hear its done so well.
You can move it now, give it a bit of trim it won’t matter.
Take as much root with it and soil that you can to help establish well.
Then water well keep an eye on it for a little while
Hope that helps

Are Heuchera good for suppressing weed on a bank?

This question was asked by
Sharon D

We have a banked area on our golf course that is full of nettles, bramble and generally horrible weeds.
Would these plants be good for this area and suppress the weeds?
Thank you

Hi Sharon
Once you’ve cleared the area properly of the nettles and brambles then yes they are very good for that position and for suppressing weeds
Hope that help
Kind Regards Vicky
