Feeding my Heucheras

This question was asked by
Julie J

I recently visited your excellent stand at Chelsea and it said on there that heuchera grown in a pot could be fed in spring to help maintain a healthy plant. Problem is I can’t remember what you said to feed it with!! Also, should I remove some of the old soil and replace with fresh?

Hi Julie
The feed we recommend is liquid seaweed feed (like the Seasol feed we sell on our website here) and slow release pellets.
When you tidy Heuchera as top dress with fresh compost and top up once a year with slow release fertilizer.
Feed once a month with the seaweed
Hope this helps
Kind regards
Vicky

Hi Jen
Slugs and snails don’t usually like heuchera heucherella and tiarella
They like to live under them ..They will trail across them but very rarely eat them!
Hope this helps
