Is it ok to move my Heucheras and Tiarellas from containers to garden now?

This question was asked by
George P

Bought a number of heuchera’s and tiarella’s from you a while back. The ones that survived are all in containers. Just lifted the daffodils and there is a big space which needs filling. Thinking about moving the plants out of the containers and into the space vacated by the daffodils. Good or bad time of year to do this.

Hi George,
No problem as long as you water them if they are a bit dry at this time of year especially in the very hot spell.
Remember they don’t like being water logged though.
Moist well drained is perfection although when they’ve re-established they will stand short periods of drought.
Hope this helps
Kind regards Vicky

RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018

The biggest show of the season is now finished, and we are already onto Chatsworth show! We took home our 10th gold medal at our 10th RHS Chelsea Flower show. We couldn’t be more thrilled!

We also were interviewed for BBC 2’s series on the show, which was really interesting to watch, hearing from the different specialist nurseries (like ourselves!) and the creators behind the show gardens. You can still find the episodes on catch up if you’re interested here. Our segment is in episode 14, 12.45 in.

We will be operating our Click and Collect at most of the shows we attend this year, so if you want to save a bit on postage and ensure we bring the plants you want, please choose this option on checkout.

If you weren’t able to make it and want to see a sample of what was at Chelsea Flower Show, we compiled some of our photos from the week. We hope you enjoy them!

We have our open days at the end of this month, the 23rd and 24th of June from 10am-4pm each day. We put all our medals out on display, have home-made cakes and refreshments, and let you tour around our nursery and choose any plants you’d like to purchase to take home. We love open days as it’s a great chance to get to chat with you lovely lot. Hope to see you there!

Soil type for Heucheras

This question was asked by
Ian W

Please can you tell me what soil type Heucheras prefer as we seen them on TV and we’re definitely thinking of buying some and we have fairly heavy clay soil where we live?

Hi Ian
Clay isn’t a problem as long as it doesn’t get waterlogged in winter
Slopes or high ground would work well with clay
If not any multi purpose compost in a pot
Pot in ground in summer and lift pots in winter
Hope this helps

Tiarella being eaten by something

This question was asked by
Sue S

Hi, I love tiarella but every time I try to grow them, they are eaten very quickly. I resorted to slug pellets but they were still munched. Someone told me it may be centipedes?? I am at a loss, can you help please ?
Many thanks
Sue Sweeney

Hi Sue
It won’t be slugs and snails as they don’t like them.
It could be caterpillars which can be sprayed.
They are hard to see as they are usually the same colour as the foliage
Hope this helps
