Planting suggestion

This question was asked by
Kate Parker

What would you suggest to plant with my Heuchera Rio, Heuchera or other, in a large trough for year round interest. The site faces east and gets morning sun, but is mostly shady. What colours look good with Rio? Many thanks.

Hi Kate
Heuchera lime marmalade is great with Rio if it shady
Hope this helps
Kind regards Vicky

Burnt Heucheras

This question was asked by
Anna C

Please can you tell me how to deal with my burnt plants, this has not happened before but temps. have been unusual . Should I dig them up and put into a cold frame? I dont want to loose these plants ALL together. Thank you.

Hi Anna
They can when established stand drought and hot weather although it can still mark the foliage, (make sure you water at night) if you leave the foliage on until the hot weather goes (even though they look a mess) then tidy the top leave. These should offer protection for the crown (the growing point ) However if they are younger then it might be an idea to give them shade under a parasol or make shift shade if, that’s not possible then dig up and replant when drought and hot spell is over …keeping in a shady place, no need for a cold frame as frames can get really hot in this weather.
Hope this helps
Kind regards Vicky

Developing my Heucara ‘path’

This question was asked by
Martin T

I am trying to develop a ‘path’ (not for walking on) to run between a slate covering. I quite like your Web presentation and the varieties you have. I can see your special offer on the web site but would like to introduce some new varieties to make the finished ‘path’ more interesting. Would it be possible to get some of your new varieties in your special offer albeit I appreciate you might add to the published price. If you are able to telephone me I could explain my self more clearly if it helps.

Thank you in anticipation of a reply

Hi Martin
Sounds lovely
However
Sorry the special offer is only our mix
If you want selected items you have to pay full price
Sorry about that
Kind regards
Vicky
